German referee Felix Brych will officiate Friday's domestic Super Cup game between Cairo rivals Ahly and Zamalek in Alexandria, the Egyptian Football Association (EFA) said on Wednesday.

Brych will be joined by assistants Mark Borsch and Stefan Lupp, the EFA said in a statement.

The 44-year-old is no stranger to Egyptian football, having officiated Ahly's loss to Haras El-Hodoud in the 2010 Egypt Cup final and Zamalek's win over Al-Hilal in the Egyptian-Saudi Super Cup last year.

He was in charge of some high-profile matches in European football, including the 2014 Europa League final between Sevilla and Benfica and the 2017 Champions League final between Juventus and Real Madrid.

Brych was also the referee of Tuesday's Champions League game between Liverpool and Napoli, which the Italian side won 2-0 in the opening match of the group stage.

Ahly are the record winners of the Super Cup with 10 titles, seven clear of Zamalek.
