The highly awaited match is scheduled to take place at the Cairo International Stadium on Sunday.

RS Berkane, aiming for their third Confederation Cup title after triumphing in 2020 and 2022, gained an early advantage by securing a narrow 2-1 victory over Zamalek in the first leg earlier this week.

The Moroccan team displayed their mettle and now have their sights set on clinching the trophy.

Coach Mouin Chaabani expressed his relief after his side's hard-fought 2-1 victory over Zamalek in the first leg of the Confederation Cup final, commending his players for their exceptional performance against a "formidable and challenging opponent."

The team's cohesion and determination were on full display, contributing to their success.

On the other hand, Zamalek need a victory with a single goal to secure the trophy.

Drawing inspiration from their 2019 triumph against the same opponent, they are determined to replicate their past success and add another Confederation Cup title to their collection.
