Gor Mahia arrived in Alexandria, Egypt for a 5 day camp ahead of their pivotal match against Zamalek this weekend. The match will be played in Cairo, 220 km from Alexandria. Gor Mahia need at least a point to keep their hopes of qualifying for the next stage alive.
The match will be officiated by Ghanaian referee Daniel Laryea. The Gor Mahia fraternity will be hoping for a match better performance from the Ghanaian compared to what happened last weekend. But playing away in North Africa is always difficult as officials often seem compromised.
Gor Mahia will be without key players: Shafiq Butambuze who is suspended after being yellow carded last weekend and Dennis OLiech who is injured and will thus be unavailable to replicate his heroics from the last time Gor Mahia played Zamalek.
