  • Venue: Cairo International Stadium (Cairo)

Zamalek will be looking to make it a third home win on the bounce when they host Ismaily SC at the Cairo International Stadium in Sunday's Egyptian Top Division action.

Zamalek have fallen short of expectations in the current season and are certainly not resembling the powerhouse that clinched the Egyptian championship in 2021 and 2022, finding themselves at risk of missing out on participation in any of CAF's competitions. With a humble tally of 38 points in 23 league appearances, the White Knights sit comfortably in the middle, but aspirations for a top-three finish remain alive, given their substantial three-game advantage over third-placed Al Masry, who they lag behind by 10 points.

Their upcoming challenge is against Ismaily SC, who are enduring a rather lackluster domestic campaign where they still have plenty of work to do to secure their stay in the Egyptian top division, but they are inching closer to achieving that goal. A collection of 31 points sees Al-Darawish occupy 12th place in the league standings, but they'll need to produce better results in the final weeks to avoid being dragged into the relegation danger, maintaining an eight-point cushion over the bottom three.

Zamalek vs Ismaily Betting Tips: ZAMALEK TO WIN

Neither side has been oozing with confidence of late, but the gulf in quality should be visible in Sunday's contest at the Cairo International Stadium, where Zamalek are expected to be in complete control throughout the match and put a fresh three points on the board. Collecting the full reward seems like a routine task for Jose Gomes' side, who can boast their dominance in H2H matchups against Ismaily SC, having triumphed in 12 out of their last 14 meetings. 

More importantly, Zamalek have stepped up their home form recently, having claimed six wins from their last eight ouints in front of their home crowd, a streak that includes toppling the record-holders Al Ahly with a 2-1 triumph in mid-April. On the flip side, Ismaily's hopes of survival took a hit recently as they suffered back-to-back identical 0-1 defeats against Al Masry and Ceramica Cleopatra, with a looming sense of impending failure as they head to a stadium where they've come away empty-handed seven times in a row. Ultimately, Zamalek are expected to assert dominance across all areas of the field and secure a much-needed victory to continue their climb towards the upper echelons of the table.

Ismaily SC team news

After overseeing his team's 1-0 loss to Ceramica Cleopatra midweek, manager Ehab Galal unexpectedly opted for just one change, suggesting he could stick with the same starting eleven.

Mohamed Hassan continues his recovery from an injury sustained in mid-April during a 0-2 loss to Pyramids FC, while Emad Hamdy remains doubtful after his absence from the team last time out for undisclosed reasons.
