Zamalek Club: 2024 African Confederation Cup Champion N 21

Zamalek Club: 2024 African Confederation Cup Champion The Egyptian club Zamalek won against its Moroccan rival RS Berkane with a score of 1-0. With this victory, Zamalek became the African Cup champion for the second time in its football career. The match took place on the night of May 19, 2024, at 8 PM Cairo time, at Cairo International Stadium, in front of a large crowd of Zamalek supporters. Zamalek won by the advantage of the goal scored in the opponent's net during the first leg match, where the Moroccan team RS Berkane won 2-1. Despite the 2-2 aggregate score, the African Union still applies the away goals rule, counting it as two goals. The match was marked by the resilience of RS Berkane, but the pressure from the crowd and the determination of Zamalek players allowed them to score the first goal late in the first half. RS Berkane protested the referee's decision for not awarding a deserved penalty kick. With this result, the match ended, and Zamalek was crowned the champion of the Confederation Cup for 2024 amidst great chaos during the trophy presentation ceremony. Photographers were unable to capture the crowning moments as members and fans of Zamalek stormed the pitch, disrupting their work. The African Football Confederation has opened an investigation into the matter. This championship marks the second in Zamalek's football career.
