Zamalek, led by its French head coach Patrice Carteron, will host Alexandria’s Smouha SC, on Thursday, in the 20th gameweek of the Egyptian Premier League.
The White Knights enter today’s meeting at the Cairo International Stadium at the top of the league rankings with 41 points. The team hopes to return to its winning form after the last two matches. Smouha are now in sixth place in the league rankings with 28 points.
The Zamalek management demanded that the players correct their course, starting from Thursday’s clash, by beating Smouha.
This comes especially as it will be the last rehearsal before the Egyptian clasico between Zamalek and Al Ahly, which is scheduled for next Monday.
