The home draw left the Military Stadium fans in rage as the Whites are now in danger of being eliminated from the group stage, with three tough games remaining.
Despite Yao Kouassi's sending off in the 18th minute, Zamalek failed to find the net against the Ivorians.
However, Hollman defended his side as he still sees hope in reaching the semis.
"Supporters should be more patient so that we can help the team find its best shape. I have been here since two months only," said the German after the game.
"I don’t think we should blame players because I believe they have done their best in the game."
"ASEC made it difficult for us after the red card. They defended extensively.
"We should never give up on reaching the semi-finals. We know our remaining games are not easy, but we can still go through."
In addition to a crunch derby with arch rivals Ahli, Zamalek still have to visit ASEC and Dynamos Harare en route to the next round.
