Zamalek's coach Jaime Pacheco announced on Tuesday his 19-man squad for Thursday's Egyptian Premier League match against Ittihad of Alexandria.

Burkinabe striker Abdoulaye Cisse returned to the roster after being dropped from the side that defeated Smouha 2-0 last week.

The 31-year-old, who returned to Zamalek last summer after spending a short spell in Libya, is yet to establish himself with the White Knights this season.

Playmaker Ayman Hefni, who has been a key Zamalek player since his close-season arrival, will miss the game due to automatic suspension.

Zamalek, who returned to winning ways at the expense of Smouha after three successive 0-0 draws,  will be looking for another victory over Ittihad to improve their position in the league table.

The 11-time Egyptian champions are seventh with 9 points from five matches.
