Rangers International are hopeful of turning the table against Zamalek in tomorrow’s CAF Champions League first-round second-leg clash at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium in Enugu.
Rangers lost the reverse fixture 4-1 in Cairo last weekend.
Mostafa Fathi, Ayman Hefny, Hossam Salama and Stanley Ohawuchi all netted for Zamalek, while Bobby Clement scored for Rangers.
This was Rangers’ second consecutive defeat having lost to Rivers United in the Nigerian Professional Football League (NPFL) game before facing Zamalek.
Imama Amapakabo, the Rangers coach, will once again look to Clement, who has netted two goals in this year’s Champions League, to inspire his side to victory.
A 3-0 victory over Zamalek, will see Rangers advance to the 2017 CAF Champions League group stages.
“Nothing is impossible in football and we hope we can advance at the end of the game”, said Amapakabo
Meanwhile, Zamalek’s win over Rangers saw the former return to winning ways as they had lost to Misr Lel-Makkasa in the Egyptian Premier League (EPL) game two weeks ago.
Nigerian striker Ohawuchi is likely to start upfront for Mohamed Helmy’s side as he looks to score again and help Zamalek register another win.
A draw will be enough to send Zamalek into this year’s CAF Champions League group stages.
