Zamalek are determined to realise their dream of winning the African Champions League after they reached the final with a 3-1 comeback victory over Morocco's Raja on Wednesday, two-goal hero Mostafa Mohamed said.

The in-form striker ended the match as a contest with two late goals after Ferjani Sassi had cancelled out Ben Malango's opener for Raja.

In the 85th minute, Mohamed rose unmarked to send a bullet header past keeper Mohamed Bouamira before adding a second three minutes later, chesting down a diagonal cross from Sassi to break clear and fire home.

The 22-year-old took his tally to eight goals in the Champions League this season. 

"I am very happy with the victory," Mohamed told beIN sports after the game.

"It is an important step in our mission to win the title. Winning the Champions League is our dream and we are determined to make this dream come true."

Zamalek meet Cairo rivals Ahly in an all-Egyptian final at Alexandria's Borg El-Arab Stadium on 27 November.
