The Confederation of African Football (CAF), has said it is investigating why the Champions League game between Zamalek and Generation Foot, scheduled to take place over the weekend was not played.
Zamalek were meant to host the Senegalese side on Saturday at the Cairo International Stadium in the second leg of their last-32 tie, with the away team holding a 2-1 lead.
Zamalek decided last Friday to move the match to Sunday in Alexandria, citing “security reasons”.

However, Generation Foot turned up on Saturday at the original match venue, but reportedly met it locked, and did not go to the new venue on Sunday.
Meanwhile, Zamalek was said to have showed up at the Alexandria Stadium the following day, and the referee called off the match after waiting for into 15 minutes into kick-off time.
The continent’s football governing body confirmed it “has been closely following the situation”, and that “updates will be issued in due time”.
Whichever club wins the disputed tie, will join 15 others in the group-phase draw on October 9.
The loser will drop to the second-tier competition, the Confederation Cup.
