Zamalek and Sfaxien engage in pre-match Twitter banter

CS Sfaxien CAF Confederations Champions

Zamalek and Tunisia’s partook in a friendly banter session on Twitter Friday evening, in anticipation of their upcoming CAF Confederations Cup clash.

After defeating Congolese side Sanga Balende in the round of 16 and advancing to the group stage, the White Knights were drawn into a group containing Tunisian juggernauts CS Sfaxien, who Zamalek will host on matchday one.

On Friday afternoon, Zamalek added some fuel to the fire of the anticipated matchup by posting a friendly Twitter joke at the expense of the Juventus Al Arab. Zamalek asked the official CS Sfaxien Twitter account if they remembered a match from 2003 in the Arab Champions League, in which Zamalek defeated the Tunisian club 3-1.

CS Sfaxien wasted no time in reminding the Egyptians that they won that edition of the Arab Champions League, and even defeated Zamalek in the semi-finals en-route to the championship.

Not to be outdone, Zamalek also reminded the Tunisians of their victory in the 1996 CAF Champions League final, which gave the White Castle their fourth CAF Champions League title. They have since added a further title.

Zamalek reminded the Tunisian club that they have yet to win a single Champions League title, before wishing their counterparts luck in their upcoming matchup.
