Hazem Emam, Zamalek's right-winger, will be ready for his team's Wednesday Egyptian Premier League game against Al-Nasr.

"Emam returns after he missed Saturday's African Confederation Cup win due to a knee injury," Zamalek's official website stated Sunday.

Zamalek defeated Orlando Pirates 2-1 away in the second round of the CAF Cup group stage.

"Emam is expected to sit on the bench during the league game," the website added.

They are bidding to win against relegated side Al-Nasr before they meet title holders Ahly on 21 July to confirm their league supremacy.

The White Knights need only four points from the four remaining games to win their first league since 2004 as they currently lead with 80 points, six ahead of eight-successive-league champions Ahly.
