Expert Betting Tips
Over their previous seventeen meetings, Zamalek have won ten while Pyramids have recorded three victories and four games ending in a share of the spoils. In the Egyptian League, Pyramids have managed just one win over Zamalek in their last fourteen matches. The home team might have spent the most money on players in the transfer market, making their team one of the most expensive sides in Africa. Pyramids are very strong on paper but are yet to try themselves against a top side. On the other hand, Zamalek are match fit, having participated in the ARAB Cup tournament and CAF Confederation Cup. The White Knights head here with a watery performance against a lowly-ranked side in the CAF Confederation Cup.
