Charki El Bahri put the Confederation Cup winners ahead on 32 minutes when he rose the highest to glance a header into the corner of the net following a cross from the left.

Midfielder Sofiane El Moudane made sure of the win when he converted a penalty on 71 minutes.

Berkane made up for a 2-0 defeat by Egyptian giants Ahly in last year's African Super Cup. Ahly also won the following edition with a shootout victory over Moroccan side Raja.

Wydad, who won the coveted Champions League last season with a 2-0 victory over Ahly, were crowned Super Cup champions once in 2018.
