Petro de Luanda head coach Flavio Amado is struggling to come to terms with his club's 1-1 draw away to Zamalek in Alexandria on Sunday.

The Angolan giants were well on course to a famous scalp on their travels following Tiago Azulao's second-half strike, only for Youssef Obama to rescue a point for the hosts in the fourth minute of referee's added time.

Obama's goal keeps Zamalek's hopes of reaching the Caf Confederations Cup knockout stages alive, but they will have to win in Luanda on the 3rd of March.

The White Knights sit at the bottom of Group D following three rounds of fixtures, having yet to win a game.

“Drawing with this scenario was difficult for us. It’s not a good result because we were close to winning the game,” Flávio is quoted as saying by

“We played a great game against Zamalek and managed to score. A lot of work needs to be done in order to qualify for the quarter-finals.

“Surely we will play for the win against Zamalek at home. We will try to take advantage of playing two home games in the return-legs.

“Zamalek is a big team and still have a chance to get past the group-stages, especially that the points difference is not huge between the teams,” he concluded.
