Zamalek’s midfielder Ahmed Tawfik set to miss Cairo derby against Al Ahly due to accumulation of yellow cards.
Tawfik’s teammate Ayman Hefny was also likely to miss Ahly’s game due to injury.
Zamalek will face Al Ahly، who have already secured the Egyptian League title، on Monday، hoping to at least achieve a moral success against their archrivals.
Tawfik was booked for the third time in his team’s tie against El Gaish where the White Castle progressed to Egypt Cup’s semifinal، having already received two other yellows in Zamalek’s league matches against Nasr Lel Ta’adeen and ENPPI.
Meanwhile، Zamalek have also confirmed that Hefny won’t catch the game against Al Ahly as he failed to recover from the thigh injury he sustained against Ahli Tripoli in CAF Champions League group stage.
Egypt Cup is Zamalek’s final hope to come out of the current season with silverware، having officially lost their chances in winning the Egyptian Premier League and the Champions League.
