The game has witnessed some controversy from Angolan referee, Hidler Martinez, who refused to award a goal for Hassania, ruling that the ball didn’t cross the line, moments before he ruled out a goal for Zamalek’s Ibrahim Hassan for an unclear handball.

“I know that referee well because he officiated a game for us before. We can say that he was a player for Zamalek today; however, this doesn’t take anything from Zamalek, who were very strong,” Gamondi said in his post-match press conference.

“I am very disappointed with our elimination from the competition; yet, I am very proud with my players. We have a very good team and we created many chances in the game.

“If we had had the ability to finish those chances we had, we could have had qualified to the next round,” Gamondi concluded.

It is worth mentioning that Zamalek will play against the winner between Etoile du Sahel and Al Hilal in the semi-finals, with the first leg ending 3-1 for the Tunisian club in Sousse.
