Despite initial reports that Mamelodi Sundowns would only come up against 20 000 Zamalek fans at the El Borg Arab Stadium on Sunday evening, it has now been revealed that it could well be much more than that.
The White Knights have been tirelessly trying to convince Egyptian authorities to allow a capacity crowd to attend the clash, as Zamalek aim to overturn a 3-0 deficit.
According to reports in Egypt, White Knight’s president Mortada Mansour has succeeded in overturning the 20 000 limit with some journalists suggesting that the stadium will be filled to the rafters. It has also been reported that there could well be close to 80 000 fans packed into the Alexandria stadium.
The game will kick off at 7:30pm Nigerian time
