Zamalek captain Abdel-Wahed El-Sayed has asserted that Congo's AC Leopards de Dolisie will not an easy opponent.

"The Congolese team will play at home, supported by their crowd, and this is not easy," the goalkeeper was quoted as saying by the club's official website Sunday.

The Cairo-based club will play in Congo next Sunday in the second round of the CAF Champions League group stage.

"The Congolese champions made it to the group stage and this proves that they are a tough team. We shouldn't underestimate them," the 36-year-old player added.

Each team in group A gained a point in the first round, as Zamalek drew with arch-rivals Ahly 1-1 on Wednesday and Leopards' match with South Africa's Orlando Pirates ended with a goalless draw.
