Zamalek and Pyramids collide in the 24th round of the Egyptian Premier League Championship at the Air Defense Stadium.
Pyramids ranks second with 45 points, collected from 23 games, and Zamalek has the same score and number of matches.
Zamalek will be subject to a deduction of 3 points from its total balance at the end of the season due to its withdrawal against Al-Ahly at the top of the first round, which makes it practically three points behind Pyramids.
Champions League clash
Pyramids adhere to making their first appearance in the CAF Champions League, which will be achieved if they achieve second place.
Because the giant Al-Ahly is in first place, with a difference of 17 points
On the other hand, Zamalek is seeking to win the second place to appear in the African Champions League next season, especially since winning the league title is almost impossible.
In the event that Zamalek wins, it will be equal in points with the Pyramids after deducting the 3 points, and it will now surpass it, which gives it an advantage and increases pressure on its opponent.
At the same time, the Arab Contractors team is awaiting the Zamalek and Pyramids struggle, as it moves away by 5 points from them and waits for the pair to stumble in a draw to approach the runners-up again, and equate with Zamalek with the deduction of its three points.
Zamalek loses its beating heart in midfield, Tariq Hamed, which indicates the possibility of a midfield gap for the white team unless Carteron finds a solution.
On the other hand, Pyramids suffers from a similar gap, but in front of the circle, after the absence of the star and goal-scorer Abdullah Al-Saeed was confirmed.
