Zamalek's hopes of CAF Champions League progression were dealt a major blow with a shock 3-1 away defeat to CAPS United of Zimbabwe.

Two goals in the final 15 minutes from forward Brian Abbas Amidu proved decisive after Ronald Pfumbidzai and Stanley Ohawuchi exchanged first-half strikes.

Five-time champion Zamalek would have moved level with Group B pace-setter USM Alger and Al-Ahli Tripoli on eight points with a victory, but instead it dropped to bottom on five, with CAPS moving above them into third on six.

That leaves everything to play for on 9 July - the final matchday - when Zamalek is at home to Al-Ahli and Alger hosts CAPS.
