Burkina Faso defender Mohamed Koffi and top scorer Bassem Morsy have returned to Zamalek's squad for the Confederation Cup round of 32 trip to Rwanda against Rayon Sports, though Abdoulaye Cisse has been ruled out.

Koffi missed out on Zamalek's recent 2-0 league win over Dakhleya having been on international duty, while Egypt's international forward Morsy was suspended for the domestic game.

Koffi's Burkina Faso teammate, Cisse, seems to not have impressed  manager Jesualdo Ferreira, who excluded him in what has become a customary omission for the striker this season.

Otherwise, Zamalek have a fully fit squad for the second leg clash, which they enter after opening their Confederation Cup campaign with a 3-1 home win a fortnight ago.


Goalkeepers: Ahmed El-Shennawy, Mahmoud Abdel-Reheem 'Gennesh', Mohamed Abo-Gabal

Defenders: Hazem Emam, Omar Gaber, Koffi, Ali Gabr, Ahmed Dwidar, Ahmed Samir, Hamada Tolba

Midfielders: Ibrahim Salah, Tarek Hamed, Ahmed Tawfik, Maarouf Yussuf, Mohamed Shaaban, Ayman Hefni, Ahmed Eid

Strikers: Khaled Kamar, Ahmed Ali, Morsy
