Monday's Cairo derby between Ahly and Zamalek in the Egypt Cup final will be refereed by Hungarian Sandor Ando, the Egyptian Football Association (EFA) announced on Saturday.

Ahly, the league champions, will face their archrivals Zamalek at Alexandria's Borg El-Arab Stadium.

The 36-year-old Ando, who started his international career in 2008, will be assisted by two of his countrymen.

Zamalek, who won the domestic double in 2015, defeated bitter rivals Ismaily on Wednesday to reach Egypt's secondary domestic competition final for the fifth time in a row.

Ahly, who defeated Enppi 2-1 in the semifinal, will meet Zamalek in the cup final for the second successive season, as Martin Jol's men will be looking to avenge their last campaign's 2-0 defeat at the Whites' hands.
