Zamalek will do without three of their key-players, Stanley Ohawuchi, Salah Riko and Islam Gamal when they face Masry in the eighth matchday of the Egyptian Premier League on Friday.

Nigerian striker Stanley Ohawuchi sustained a muscle injury during the goalless draw with Smouha in the league's sixth matchday and missed the Whites' 2-1 win over ENPPI this week because of injury.

Ohawuchi also missed Wednesday's training, one day before the team travel to Alexandria.

The Cairo giants will also face Masry without the attendance of midfielders Salah Riko and Islam Gamal, who are out with injuries.

Meanwhile, Zamalek’s skipper Mahmoud Abdel-Razek "Shikabala" could prove a liability for the game against Masry as he suffers from fatigue; the team's manager gave him a break from trainings to be fit for the game.

Zamalek, who have four games in hand, are now 12th of the league table with seven points, while Masry are in sixth on 12.
