Zamalek and the brown princess
Zamalek club is facing a difficult task today in front of Al-Ahly, as it entered a closed camp like the opponent, to prepare for the match of the century, and this camp witnessed more than wonderful and enthusiastic atmosphere for the players, amid a high concentration of the upcoming battle.
Today, Zamalek dreams of the sixth princess to decorate their coffers again, but this dream needs to do their utmost to win it, as the White Knight is at his best and has players at the highest level who will present a match worthy of them, hoping to achieve victory and ascend the podiums of the coronation.
