  1. This is a big hurdle to jump for Zesco they need to prepare well this time around because Egyptian sides are no push overs. Zesco need to work more on their ball posession in most of their games which i have seen them play they fail to keep the ball for longer periods this is where matches are won or lost.They will need to keep more ball possession to frustrate their opponents weather in their half or the opponents
