RS Berkane 1-0 Zamalek | Match Highlights | VIDEO
Zamalek were on the verge of escaping with another 0-0 away draw in the CAF Confederation Cup but Morocco’s RS Berkane were still able to snatch a first-leg advantage in the final after striking deep in stoppage time.
Having wasted several goal-scoring chances, especially in the first half, Fo Doh Laba finished off a neatly-worked breakaway four minutes into the additional time to spark wild celebrations at the Berkane Municipal Stadium.
The competition’s leading scorer took his tally to eight goals as he atoned for a couple of glaring misses before the break.
Zamalek could have also netted an away goal in the second half, only for winger Mahmoud Kahraba to miss a sitter following a one-on-one situation.
The White Knights will attempt to overturn the narrow deficit when they host Berkane next Sunday at Alexandria’s Borg El-Arab Stadium as they chase their first ever Confederation Cup title.
