"I hope for a speedy recovery for all of my injured players before the decisive second leg of the African Confederation Cup against Zamalek," Chaabani conveyed to Moroccan website elbotola on Thursday.

The Oranges Boys will host Zamalek in the first leg of the secondary continental tournament final, with the second leg scheduled to take place in Cairo on 19 May.

"We are dealing with the absence of several key players, including Abdelkarim Baadi, Oussama Lamlioui, Youssef El Fahli, and Youssef Zghoudi," added the RS Berkane coach.

Chaabani emphasized the need for caution and careful squad selection, particularly as the first leg will be played at home.

RS Berkane secured their place in the final following the unfortunate cancellation of the second leg of their semifinal clash against Algeria's USMA for the second time in a week.

Meanwhile, the White Knights earned their spot in the Confederation Cup final after a commanding 3-0 aggregate victory over Ghana's Dreams FC in the continental tournament semifinals.
