Despite bagging a 4-1 first leg win in their CAF Champions League tie against Enugu Rangers at home, Zamalek coach Mohamed Helmy remains wary of the Nigerians.

Speaking after their massive win, Helmy expressed happiness after the victory, but warns that it is not over yet.

The White Knights’ comfortable win puts the 2016 losing finalists closer to the Champions League group stage after a turbulent season domestically.

According to KingFut,com, the coach said the return leg in Nigeria demands more focus from his charges.


“Thanks to the players, they showed great quality and massive responsibility against Rangers,” said Helmy.

“We should not forget that we have a second match against Rangers, we have not qualified yet. The second leg requires more concentration to guarantee the qualification to the next round.”

Although it will not be easy, the Nigerian Premier League side will now bank on their home advantage to turn the result in their favour.

Zamalek is set to face Rangers in Nigeria next Sunday in the second leg of the first round of the Champions League.
