Ex-Nigeria youth international Stanley Ohawuchi was the match winner last night for Egyptian club Zamalek, who battle Nigeria champions Rangers next month in continuation of this year’s CAF Champions League.

They were drawn bye in the preliminary rounds of this year's competition, while Rangers eliminated JS Saoura of Algeria on the away goals' rule to reach the first round.
Ohawuchi scored the third goal in Zamalek’s 3-2 win at El Gaish on Monday night.
Zamalek are now third on the league with 37 points from 17 games.
The former Bayelsa United star scored in the 54th minute to give Zamalek a 3-1 lead.
He has now scored two goals in the league for the top club and two goals in the CAF Champions League.
The former Mosta of Malta striker is on loan at Zamalek from another Cairo club Wadi Degla.
