Fit-again Mido helps unimpressive Zamalek go through

A first-half Mido header was enough for Zamalek to labor to a 1-0 win over Tanzania’s Young Africans and secure a place in the CAF Champions League round of 32.

The Whites, who registered a 1-1 draw in the first leg, go through with a 2-1 aggregate victory, in a match that saw the visitors play with a man down for almost half an hour.

Midfielder Athuman Idd was dismissed in the 63rd minute for a professional foul against Benin striker Razak Omotoyossi, before substitute Ahmed Hassan missed a penalty for Zamalek.

Hassan Shehata’s team will meet the winner from the match between Ivorian giants Africa Sports and Missile of Gabon.
