Zamalek complete turnaround to finish top

Zamalek completed their Caf Confederations Cup group stage turnaround with a 0-0 draw away to NA Hussein Dey at Stade du 5 Juillet 1962 in Algiers on Sunday, to advance to the quarterfinals as Group D winners.

The Egyptian giants hadn't won a game until matchday four of this season's group stages. But a 1-0 win away to Petro de Luanda breathed life into their campaign and following a 4-0 thumping of Gor Mahia the White Knights started to believe.

Christian Gross's men completed the turnaround with a hard-fought goalless draw away to the Blood and Gold who duly bow out of the competition.

Zamalek are joined in the knockout stages by Gor Mahia who beat Petro 1-0 in Nairobi despite ending the fixture with nine men.

The two clubs finished level on nine points apiece with Zamalek at the summit due to a superior head-to-head record. Hussein Dey finished third with eight points, followed by Petro on seven.
