Zamalek announce squad for crucial Ismaily clash
Zamalek manager Ehab Galal has announced an 18-man squad that will face Ismaily in gameweek 30 of the Egyptian Premier League on Monday.
As Al Ahly already secured the league title six weeks before the end of the season, Zamalek and Ismaily are targeting a second-place finish that would secure them a spot in the CAF Champions League next season.
Ismaily are currently second with 56 points, two ahead of third-placed Zamalek. They’re followed by Al Masry who have 49 points and a game in hand. The White Knight will be hoping to earn the three points at Ismailia Stadium on Monday to go above Ismaily on the table.
Zamalek squad saw the absence of a number of important players as attacking duo Nana Poku and Kabongo Kasongo as well as Tunisian right-back were ruled out with injuries.
Meanwhile, Ismaily have announced that in-form Colombian striker Diego Calderon will miss the crucial game due to injury.
Goalkeepers: Ahmed El-Shennawy, Mahmoud Gennesh.
Defenders: Mohamed Abdel-Ghany, Mahmoud Alaa, Mahmoud Hamdy El-Wensh, Hazem Emam, Moruf Yusuf, Islam Gamal.
Midfielders: Tarek Hamed, Mahmoud Abdel-Aziz, Ahmed Tawfik, Abdallah Gomaa, Ayman Hefny, Ahmed Madbouly, Emad Fathi, Mohamed Antar, Mohamed El-Shamy.
Forwards: Bassem Morsy.
