The team has gained 31 points with 21-19 aggregate goal difference and currently sit on the seventh position in the league standings. Enyimba had to battle in three qualifying rounds to reach the group stage. The hosts defeated one by such teams as Vipers (0-1, 2-0), Vital’O (5-1, 1-2) and Etoile Sahel (3-0, 1-3). Despite quite average results, the team avoids defeats at their home field in last 25 matches, recording 20 wins and five draws.

Zamalek are currently second in the league with 66 points after 31 matches played. The team is undefeated in their last 11 matches in all competitions with two draw and nine defeats. Zamalek battled in two qualifying rounds, defeating Union Douala twice (1-0, 2-0) and MO Bejaia (2-0, 1-1). On top of that, Zamalek are undefeated in their seven recent away matches since the beginning of March.
These Nigerian and Egyptian side haven’t faced one another before. Enyimba are undefeated at home for over a year and they shouldn’t end this impressive streak in match against Egypt Premier League runners-up.
Prediction for the match: Enyimba to win with +1.0 Asian handicap.
