Zamalek will be hoping for an easy passage to the Confederation Cup final 16 when they visit Rwanda's Rayon Sport in the round of 32 return leg on Sunday.
Following a 3-1 home win Zamalek theoretically have an easy task in Kigali, although some bitter memories of away African games may well worry the Cairo giants ahead of the second leg.
Poor refereeing as well as terrible pitch conditions have often caused Egyptian representatives in African competitions problems away from home. Zamalek will be hoping for better luck.
Three goals from midfielders Ahmed Tawfik and Ahmed Eid (double) will give Zamalek an edge against the Rwandan minnows, who have however managed to score an away goal.
Under recently appointed Portuguese manager Jesualdo Ferreira, Zamalek did not look particularly convincing in the first-leg, which came following a nearly four-week stoppage of domestic action.
They did slightly improve against Dakhleya in the league last week, securing a morale-boosting 2-0 win just before resuming continental action.
The Whites will be boosted by the return of Burkina Faso defender Mohamed Koffi, as well as top-scorer Bassem Morsy, who were both absent during the Dakhleya win for different reasons.
Midfielder Tawfik also managed to make the squad for the Rwanda trip after recovering from an injury against Dakhleya that had put his form in doubt.
Burkina Faso striker Abdoulaye Cisse, however, has been shunned by Ferreira, in what has become a customary omission this season for the once-prolific frontman.
Otherwise, Zamalek have a fully fit squad for the Confederation Cup away tie.
