Zamalek will lock horns with NA Hussein Dey in the 2018/19 CAF Confederation Cup Group D match on Wednesday.

Kick-off is at 21h00 CAT.

The game is scheduled to take place at the Borg El Arab Stadium in the Egyptian city of Alexandria

Zamalek succumbed to a 4-2 defeat to Kenyan giants Gor Mahia away on match-day one earlier this month.

The result left the Egyptian giants placed fourth on the group table - three points behind the leaders, Gor Mahia.

Ibrahim Hassan, who netted twice against Gor Mahia, will be keen to inspire Zamalek to victory in Egypt.

Meanwhile, Hussein Dey secured a 2-1 win over Angolan side Petro de Luanda at home earlier this month.

The win took the Algerian side to second place on the group standings and they are only behind leaders, Gor Mahia on goal-difference.

Hussein Dey will look to Walid Alati, who was on the score sheet against Luanda.
