Zamalek football director Khaled Galal is confident his side will come up with all three points from Harare when they visit Zambia's CAPS United in the CAF Champions League group stage on Sunday.

Going into the away Group B clash lying in third spot, Zamalek will be looking to beat bottom-of-the-table CAPS before hosting Libya's Ahly Tripoli in the last group game.

"All the players are fully focused, we will come back from Harare winners," Galal was quoted as saying by Zamalek's official website on Thursday.

The Zamalek contingent had a 12-hour flight from Cairo to the Zimbabwean capital, a trip that saw them take transit flights twice.

As a result, manager Augusto Inacio cancelled Thursday's training session for fear of exhaustion after such a long trip.

Champions League runners-up Zamalek slipped to third place of their group following their 2-0 defeat at current leaders USM Alger – who drew 1-1 with the Whites the previous game in Alexandria.

Zamalek, who are two points adrift of USM Alger and second-placed Ahli Tripoli, eye victories in their last two remaining group games to guarantee a spot in the last-eight.
