The Cairo giants secured their second Confederation Cup title by triumphing over RS Berkane 1-0 in the second leg of the final, held at Cairo Stadium on Sunday.

Despite suffering a 2-1 defeat in the first leg in Morocco, Zamalek claimed the title based on the away goal rule, following a 2-2 draw on aggregate.

"The victory was crucial to bring joy to the numerous Zamalek supporters who attended the game," Gaber told a television programme afterwards.

“We produced a strong performance in the second leg, and our triumph was well-deserved," he added.

"Zamalek always dedicates itself to winning titles, and I congratulate all the team's fans on this achievement," Gaber stated.

This victory marks Zamalek's second Confederation Cup title, with their previous triumph coming in 2019 against the same opponent, RS Berkane.

Throughout the game, Zamalek exerted significant pressure on the visitors and controlled the field, capitalizing on a back pass from Ahmed 'Zizo' Sayed in the 23rd minute, which led to Ahmed Hamdi scoring with a well-placed shot.
