Match K.O @ 20:30 Cairo Local Time | 13:30 ET Canada | USA

Ahly will be determined to exact revenge on reigning champions Zamalek, for last year’s 2-0 Egypt Cup final defeat, when the arch-rivals lock horns once again in the competition’s same stage on Monday.

A brace from Zamalek striker Bassem Morsi, who is set to lead his side’s frontline once again, condemned Ahly to the bitter defeat that completed a forgettable, trophy-less season for the Reds.

This will not be Ahly’s sole motivation, however, as they will also be setting their sights on their first domestic double since 2007 – the very year that saw them claim their last Egypt Cup.

Zamalek, on the other hand, have their own motivations to beat Ahly in the final, which they have now reached for the fifth consecutive time.

A fourth Egypt Cup title on the trot would surely amount to a historic achievement, as the Whites will be also keen to save their domestic season with a trophy.

With the team cruising to an emphatic 4-0 semi-final victory over bitter rivals Ismaily, Zamalek could not have hoped to enter the game against their perennial rivals in better condition.

Having been able to finally fill the void left by left-back Mohamed Abdel-Shafi’s departure with the signing of Ali Fathi, the Whites have now solved a long-standing problem just in time before their clash with Ahly.
