The White Knights' eight games unbeaten run came to an end after a defeat at home to Enppi on matchday 18. Zamalek were unlucky as they were punished on the counter by Enppi, with nineteen (19) shots fired in that encounter and 73% possession, Zamalek were made to pay for their mistakes when Nigerian John Okoye scored for the visitors in what appeared to be offside, the away victory was sealed when a freekick from outside the box landed in front of the man of the match as John Okoye blasted it to the top corner and left Zamalek's keeper with no chance.
Zamalek's loss opened up opportunities for their closest rival Pyramids, and gave room for Al Ahly in the quest to win the double this season.
Zamalek are still at the top of the league at the expense of Al Ahly's four outstanding matches with two points ahead of Pyramids who also failed to take advantage of the White Knights's setback.
Zamalek have now lost two (2) games already at home this season compared to last season's one (1). They have played nine, won five and lost twice at home all this season.

Expert Betting Tips
In the last 20 meetings between both teams, Zamalek have won thirteen times while El Gaish have recorded five wins with two matches ended in a draw.
Zamalek were unlucky the last time out and they will be out to rewrite their mistakes, bet on home win for 1.75.
Zamalek are on forty-one points but have played four more games than Al Ahly who are on CAF duties, mathematically, they might not really assume the spot when Al Ahly play their outstanding matches. They need to keep winning as this is their only opportunity to win a silverware this season, they are a top team and I'm not sure they would want to lose two matches in a row, bet on a home win and under 3.5 for 2.02.
The visitors are going to be defending all through and might concede a penalty in this match, bet on both halves under 1.5 for 1.80.
