VIDEO: Zamalek advance to group stage despite defeat
Zamalek have advanced to the 2017 CAF Champions League group stage with a 5-3 aggregate victory against Enugu Rangers of Nigeria.
The five-time champions had claimed a comfortable 4-1 first-leg advantage in Cairo before losing 2-1 at Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium on Sunday.
Zamalek keeper Mahmoud Abdel-Rehim Gennesh denied Rangers from scoring an early goal as he blocked a shot from striker Bobby Clement just four minutes into the game.
Two minutes later, Rangers’ keeper was called into action as he diverted Maarouf Youssef’s shot from inside the box into a corner.
Around the half-hour mark, Gennesh turned Clement’s free-kick into a corner to keep the game goalless.
Rangers then exploited a defensive error by Zamalek to take the lead with Tope Olusesi firing home on the stroke of half-time.
The Nigerian side continued to push for a second goal after the break but Zamalek keeper Gennesh produced a double save to keep the scoreline at 1-0.
Five minutes after the break, White Knights coach Mohamed Helmy introduced Ayman Hefny instead of Hossam Paulo before Mohamed Ibrahim made way for Bassem Morsi at the one-hour mark.
Substitute Morsy needed only 10 minutes to score an equaliser with his right foot from inside the box following a cross from Hefny.
With four minutes to go, the home side was awarded a penalty after Tarek Hamed fouled one of Rangers’ players inside the box and Godwin Aguda stepped up to score from the spot and make it 2-1.
