When is the Caf Champions League clash between Zamalek SC and Tusker and how can I watch?
Goal brings you everything you need to know about the White Knights v Brewers First Round Rematch
Tusker will face Zamalek SC in the Caf Champions League first round second leg at Borg El Arab Stadium on Friday.
The White Knights got the first leg advantage in their first round clash after a 47th-minute goal from Ashraf Bencharki gave them a 1-0 victory at Nyayo Stadium.
The Brewers should however blame themselves for not having achieved at least one draw as they dominated the North Africans, especially in the first half where they missed a number of scoring opportunities.
Ahead of the game in Alexandria, Tusker coach Robert Matano claimed Zamalek would try to scare them away by using the army and police.
“We know them, we’ve been there about 10 or more times and I know their behavior and we’ll handle it as it comes. We have to deal with it because we know them and we won’t be worried because we know how they can possibly behave, ”said Matano. Goal.
“We know they are going to start scaring us by using the police and the military. They will come with military armor and cause tension in an attempt to frighten us. We have seen this before and we are aware of it. “
Meanwhile, Zamalek coach Patrice Carteron believes they still have a tough game at home despite the slight advantage.
“It was a tough game and we knew facing Tusker would never be easy, especially when a lot of their players are playing for the national team. We didn’t have time to prepare for this game either, so I am really happy with the way we played this team, ”said Carteron. Goal.
“We created a lot of chances and we could have scored two easy goals and we also know it will be a tough game next week and we have to prepare well to finish the job.
“Tusker is really well organized defensively and difficult to ask them a lot of questions. They are one of the most difficult teams to face, and being the champions of Kenya is proof that indeed they are a good and very tough team.
The Brewers reached the first round of the competition after beating Djibouti’s AS Arta Solar 7 4-1 overall in the preliminary round, while Zamalek was among the top teams to receive a pass.
Before the first round meeting on Saturday, the two teams had met in the same competition in 2005 and it was Zamalek who won both matches – 1-0 in the first meeting held in Nairobi and 3-1 in the second meeting held in Cairo. .
