Zamalek will face off with Etoile du Sahel in the CAF Confederation Cup match on Sunday.

Kick-off is at 21h00 CAT.

The semi-final first-leg game is scheduled to be played at the Borg El Arab Stadium in the Egyptian city of Alexandria.

The White Knights secured their spot in the last four after defeating Moroccan side Hassania Agadir 1-0 on aggregate.

Zamalek have never won the Confederation Cup despite winning five CAF Champions League titles and one CAF African Cup Winners' Cup trophy.

Ibrahim Hassan, who scored against Hassania, is one of the Egyptian giants' key players and he will be hoping to inspire his side to victory at home.

Meanwhile, Etoile qualified for the semi-finals after defeating Sudanese champions Al Hilal Omdurman 5-2 on aggregate.

The Jewel Coast are looking to go all the way and clinch a record-equaling third Confederation Cup title this season.

Yassine Chikhaoui, who scored twice against Al Hilal, is an experienced striker and he has the ability to fire the Tunisian giants to victory over Zamalek.

CAF is yet to announce the match officials for the first-leg clash between Zamalek and Etoile.
