Zamalek's Portuguese coach Augusto Inacio is worried about his team after seeing his players wasting many scoring chances in Friday's 2-0 home win over Zimbabwe’s Caps United.

Two second-half headers from Bassem Morsi and Stanley Ohawuchi and some poor goalkeeping gave the Whites a precious victory in their opening Group B clash of the African Champions League group stage. But Inacio was not satisfied.

"Wasting many goal scoring opportunities could push me to visit the hospital soon. It is very dangerous and could lead the team to loss in the coming matches," Inacio said in the press conference after the match.

"Winning the match came as compensation after that number of missed chances in the first half. We start to attack perfectly, but we lack the final touch," added the 62-year-old coach who took charge at Zamalek in April for a year-and-a-half.

Zamalek, who were the runners-up in last year's competition, are level on three points with Algeria’s USM Alger, who crushed Libya’s Ahli Tripoli 3-0 earlier Friday.

Winning their first Champions League title since 2002 could be the best hope for Zamalek fans after all but losing the domestic league title race to arch rivals Ahly.
