Martin Jol prefers facing Zamalek over other African sides
Cairo giants Al Ahly and Zamalek have both qualified for the group stage of the 2016 CAF Champions League, after defeating Young Africans and MO Béjaïa respectively.
The 60 year-old Dutchman claims that he that he would prefer arch-rivals Zamalek given his familiarity with their style of play, unlike some of the other clubs remaining in the competition.
Jol is yet to face Zamalek with the Red Devils, having been appointed as Ahly manager a fortnight after the latter team came out on top in the Cairo derby.
Al Ahly qualified after edging Tanzanian champions Young Africans courtesy of a 95th-minute winner in the return leg at the Borg El Arab Stadium.
Zamalek did not make life too difficult for themselves, managing a 1-1 draw in Algeria to qualify with a 1-3 aggregate scoreline.
The CAF Champions League group stage draw is set to take place in Cairo, on the 24th of May.
The list of teams that have qualified to the group stage is as follows:
- Al Ahly (Egypt)

- ASEC Mimosas (Ivory Coast)
- Enyimba (Nigeria)
