Zamalek versus Caps United
Zimbabwe CUP Kings CAPS United will get their CAF Champions League Group B campaign underway against five-time champions Zamalek at the Borg El Arab Stadium in Alexandria today.
The match which starts at 9pm Zimbabwe time can be watched on TV live at SuperSport 9.
The Lloyd Chitembwe coached Makepekepe has nothing to lose as they face a team nicknamed The White Knights.
The Egyptian side came close to winning the Champions League title last year, only to fall at the hands of eventual winners Mamelodi Sundowns of South Africa, and the Cairo giants want to go one step better, this time around, and win their sixth crown as African football kings.
The other opening Group B clash features a Maghreb derby between USM Alger of Algeria and Libyan side Al Ahli Tripoli at the Stade 5 Juillet in Algiers and that game will start at 6pm.
CAPS United venture into CAF Champions League for the first time after winning against TP Mazembe of DR Congo in the knockout phase.
While the head to head and odds are in favour of the Egyptian side, there is a possibility that the Zimbabwean side could play beyond expectations in front of a tiny crowd of 5000 spectators.
