Zamalek will need to be careful when they host Maghreb Fes in the second leg of their round of 16 clash in the CAF Champions League Sunday, according to the club's assistant coach.

“The clash will be difficult as our opponents will be determined to beat us on our home soil,” assistant coach Osama Nabih was quoted as saying on the club’s official website Wednesday.

The Cairo giants gained a precious 2-0 away victory in Morocco with goals scored by Ahmed Hassan and Ahmed Gaafar.

The visitors are expected to arrive at Cairo Airport Thursday evening and will have a couple of training session before the decisive game.

“The match won’t be easy as some may think but we will be ready,” Nabih concluded.
