Zamalek is looking forward to ending a lengthy barren run in African competitions as they meet Morocco's RS Berkane in the second leg of the Confederation Cup final today Sunday.

The two squads meet on the pitch of Borg El Arab Stadium at 10:00 pm (Cairo local time).

The Whites are in need to win by a two-goal difference to lift their first continental trophy since 2003.

The Whites will be looking to overturn the first leg defeat in today’s clash after conceding a last-gasp goal that ended their impressive run of four successive clean sheets away from home in the Confederation Competition.

Zamalek has not tasted any success on the continental stage since defeating Morocco's Wydad Casablanca in the African Super Cup in 2003.

Around 60،000 tickets have been sold for the match، and a huge turnout of fans is expected to attend.

Security forces are spread out across all roads to the stadium، and at its entrances to prevent any kind of chaos.


The Cairo giants won the lucrative African Champions League five times، only second to Ahly's record of eight crowns، but have never lifted the Confederation Cup trophy.

On the other hand، Berkane enters the final second leg holding a slim advantage from the first leg held last Sunday. Togolese Kodjo Fo-Doh Laba scored deep into injury time to settle things in north-eastern Morocco and spread joy to local supporters in Berkane، nicknamed “The Orange City”.
