CAF unveils venue, referees of Zamalek’s test in Egypt’s Confederation Cup semis

Egyptian team Zamalek will play the first leg of the CAF Confederation Cup semi-final at Alexandria’s Borg El-Arab stadium, the Confederation of African Football (CAF) revealed on Saturday.

The Whites ensured a place at Africa’s secondary club competition after passing Morocco’s Hassania Agadir in the quarter-finals. The first leg ended in a 0-0 draw in Morocco, while Zamalek secured a 1-0 win in the return match in Suez on 14 April.

Zamalek, who are seeking their first continental title since winning the African Super Cup in 2003, will be facing the winner of Tuesday’s quarter-final clash between Tunisia’s Etoile Sahel and Sudan’s Hilal.

The semi-final’s first leg will be played on 28 April at Borg El-Arab, while the return match will be played on 5 May outside Egypt.

CAF also announced that Zambian referee Janny Sikazwe will be in charge of the first leg in Alexandria, while the return leg will be officiated by Jean Jack Ngamb of DR Congo.
