Zamalek holds Ittihad Tanger to a goalless draw in Confederation Cup
The White Knights are one step closer to advancing to the group stage as they need to achieve a victory over Tanger in the second leg game which will take place in Egypt.
Seven minutes after the game started, Zamalek scored a goal after Mahmoud Kahraba sent a cross towards Amr El-Said, but the player decided to leave the ball to Ibrahim Hassan who converted it into a goal. However, the referee cancelled the goal after the linesman announced an offside.
Tanger made their first attempt in the 20th minute through a shot that Zamalek goalie Mahmoud Gennesh managed to block.
Zamalek controlled the rest of the first half and continued to pressure the hosts through their crosses, while Tanger were not able to show any real threats to the Cairo giants.
The hosts went back to the game five minutes into the second half with a dangerous cross from a free-kick but Zamalek defenders were able to block their attempt.
In the 59th minute, Kahraba received a marvellous pass from Mohamed Ibrahim which sent him face-to-face with Tanger goalie, but Kahraba wasted the valuable chance.
Zamalek continued their attempts to score the game’s first goal through crosses and shots from outside the box until they retreated in the last minutes of the game, sticking to defence to make sure they don’t concede any late goals until the game ended in a goalless draw.
