Haras El Hodoud coach Tarek El Ashry has said the Egyptian team were targeting their first away points in the Confederation Cup when they face Zanaco away in Lusaka on Saturday at Sunset stadium on match day two in Group B.
El Ashry said in Lusaka after arrival from Egypt that Haras knew Zanaco would be difficult to beat at home but the time for the Egyptians to break their away jinx had arrived.
“We are making our fourth consecutive appearance in the competition,” Al Ashry said.
“They (Zanaco) have scored good results in both the Champions League and Confederations Cup that off course includes elimination of Enyimba who are two times African champions.
“I am hoping this time we will utilize our chances and break the jinx of always losing away games.”
Haras are joint second in Group B together with Confederation Cup two-time champions SC Sfaxien of Tunisia whom they drew 0-0 with on August 14 at home in Alexandria.
Zanaco are bottom with no point after losing 1-0 away to FUS de Rabat of Morocco on August 14.
