Zamalek vs El Shorta by Sors
Zamalek is about to win its first title in this league since 2004, as the hosts have five-point advantage over the second team in the standings (ENPPI) and eleven points more than Al Ahly (third position).
In the point of fact, the situation is even more favorable for Zamalek, given the fact that the hosts have played five games less than ENPPI and one game less than Al Ahly.
The appointment of Jesualdo Ferreira as a manager of Zamalek in the beginning of February obviously has the desired effect, as the hosts have won ten from twelve games under new manager (10-1-1 19/4), including four of their five home games in this period (4-1-0 9/1).
On the other hand, there are some things that need be taken into account here.
At first place, this will be fifth match for the home team over the past three weeks, which could be a problem.Zamalek is one of the most qualitative teams in the league, but it doesn’t change the fact that even this team doesn’t have so many equivalent players in the squad.
El Shorta is in the middle of the standings in this league, with only one win from its previous five games in May (1-3-1 4/3), but with very solid performances away from home in 2015, as the guests recorded four wins and five draws in those nine games (4-5-0 10/5), including a 1-1 draw in the visit to ENPPI in the beginning of the month.
Zamalek will most probably manage to win three points today, although I doubt that this will be so easy task against a well-organized team like El Shorta.
