Preview: Pyramids FC, Future FC seek to complete passage to Confederation Cup group stage

Ahram Online , Tuesday 8 Nov 2022

Egypt’s representatives at the Confederation Cup Pyramids FC and Future FC will be shooting for a group stage spot on Wednesday when they face Nigelec and Primeiro de Agosto in Cairo in the second leg of the competition’s third round.



Pyramids FC will be looking to overturn their slim 1-0 defeat to the champions of Niger in the first leg to advance to the next round.

On paper, the big spending club’s mission will not be difficult, especially with the return of the team’s veteran playmaker Abdallah El-Saed, who missed the first leg due to injury.

El-Saed’s return will boost the team’s chances on Wednesday’s clash given his great capabilities and his vital role in feeding the team’s strikers.

The absence of team’s young forward Ibrahim Adel continues, as he is yet to recover from a muscle injury.

On the other hand, the debutant Future FC will have an easy mission against Primeiro de Agosto of Angola at El-Salam Stadium.

The Egyptian side were held to a 1-1 draw by the Angolan side in the first leg in Luanda last Wednesday.

They were close to winning the game but they suffered an injury time goal that allowed the host to level the score.
