book for decent as Dolly fires a shot straight at Gennesh.

Hour played in Alexandria - Zamalek with all the ball, but Sundowns defence holding firm for the time being.

gets up well, but can only succeed in directing his header attempt inches wide of goal.
Free-kick comes to nothing as Khaled plays the ball straight into the wall.
Early free-kick for Zamalek in a very dangerous position Ball hit Kekana flush on the hand - not much he could do about it though.

Things arre getting pretty heated on the touchlines as Denis Onyango
receives treatment. Looks like the Ugandan will have to be replaced.
Counter-attack is on for Mamelodi Sundowns, but Tiyani Mabunda
lacks patience and tries his luck from range - ball was always going wide. Brazilians at tad nervy.

- Sundowns clear from danger.
12' - CHANCE! Ohawuchi
bursts into the area, but is unable to find the back of the net with the goal at his mercy! So close to the opening goal.
Zamalek very eager to get their feet on the ball, holding a very high line against the Brazilians as they go in search of the opening goal.
6' - Khama Billiat
lets fly from range, ball wasalways flying wide.
Lively start to the clash as would have been expected with Zamalek doing a lot of running - Denis Onyango
