Gor Mahia will take on Zamalek in a Group D match of the Caf Confederation Cup on Sunday.

First, both teams are separated by just a point and defeat for either side will be a disaster considering the fact that table toppers Hussein Dey might book a place in the quarters if they register a win against Petro Atletico of Angola.

On the other hand, Zamalek will be going for revenge, having lost 4-2 in their trip to Nairobi four weeks ago. K’Ogalo is second in a crowded Group D, with only three points separating the top team and Petro Atletico at the bottom.

Goal parades five players, who will be vital for the Kenyan side in Egypt.

  • USM Alger player Abderrahmane Meziane (L) and Gor Mahia FC player Charles Momanyi.

    The defender has to be on toes and help his captain in stopping the speedy Zamalek attackers. He is a good reader of the game and can make vital interceptions when there is need.

  • Gor Mahia star Lawrence Juma with Francis Mustafa.

    Juma has to step up and show his potential to the world. On his day he is unstoppable, and he has to step up away against Zamalek. The former Nzoia Sugar midfielder has to take chances when in a position to score.

  • Gor Mahia striker Kenneth Muguna Jacques Tuyisenge and Boniface Omondi v AFC Leopards.

    Muguna has shaped Gor Mahia midfield; his aggressive play has endeared him to the fans. Zamalek has quick midfielders known for their short passes; and it will be the work of Muguna and Juma to stop them.

  • Dennis Nganga of KCB v Francis Kahata of Gor Mahia.

    He remains the only consistent creative piece in the K’Ogalo squad. The former Thika United player will have to find ways of breaking the Zamalek defense and get a goal when an opportunity arises.

  • Jacques Tuyisenge of Gor Mahia celebrates v Hussein Dey.

    The Rwandan striker is the real deal when it comes to scoring goals. He has to keep the Zamalek defense on check to help spoil play from the back. He will also have to capitalize on the chances created to get the goals.
