Zamalek suffered a second consecutive defeat in the Egyptian league, this time from Zed 2-1 at the Cairo International Stadium.
Before the match, coach Juan Carlos Osorio decided to exclude the trio of Ahmed Fattouh, Mustafa Zanari and Mohamed Sobhi for disciplinary reasons.
The start of the match was good for Zamalek, as he succeeded in opening the scoring in the third minute through Seif Al-Din Al-Jaziri, after which the Osorio battalion wasted a large number of chances achieved.
The Whites' form plummeted over time and Zed began to create danger until he managed to equalise through Mustafa Ziko in the 32nd minute.
Zamalek made one of the worst games this season in the second half, did not create any dangerous opportunity on the goal of Ali Lotfi, unlike Magdy Abdel Aty’s team, which reached a lot to the goal of Mohamed Awad until I realized the second goal in the 81st minute through substitute Delson Camone.
With this defeat, Zamalek's balance froze at the eighth point, and fell to sixth place, while Zed reached the 12th point and is in second place, only 3 points behind the leader Pyramids.
This defeat raises many questions about the future of Juan Carlos Osorio in the White Castle, despite the assurances of Zamalek officials before the game that the Colombian coach will not leave in the coming period.
