Zamalek's Scottish coach Alex McLeish has firmly demanded his squad to be highly focused and responsible during their anticipated game on Saturday against Cameroon's Union Douala in the second leg of the African Champions League round of 32.

"I will not accept any irresponsibility in the home game. I hope the team can put together a good performance like they did in the first leg," the tactician was quoted as saying to players during Wednesday's trainings, on the club's official website.

The club stated the football team is ready with fully ready for the African clash.

The Egyptian league and cup champions, Zamalek, opened their Champions League campaign with a vital 1-0 win over Douala at the first leg in Cameroon last weekend.

Alongside rivals and runners-up Ahly, the Whites are representing Egypt in the African Champions League after finishing as champions in the Egyptian Premier League last season.

Should Zamalek march through, they will be facing either Tunisia's Club Africain or Algeria's MO Bejaia – who are currently trailing 1-0 following the first leg in Rades.

Zamalek currently lies second in the Egyptian league table with 41 points after 21 matches, six behind leaders Ahly.
