Zamalek volleyball team beat Sharkia 3-0 on Tuesday to reach Egypt Cup final, where they will face Tala’a El-Gaish.

Zamalek dominated their semi-final game against Sharkia, winning the first two sets 25-20 and 25-19 respectively, before securing their spot in the final with a comfortable 25-15 win in the third set.

In the other semi-final, Tala’a El-Gaish eliminated Al Ahly, who were most recently crowned African champions after beating Tunisia’s Etoile du Sahel 3-1 in the final.

Despite losing the first set 26-24, the military club managed to secure a 3-1 comeback victory, winning three successive sets 25-19, 25-20 and 25-20. The match was a repeat of their league clash in March when El-Gaish defeated Al Ahly 3-1 to claim the Egyptian volleyball league title.

Al Ahly will face Sharkia in the third place play-off, while the White Knights are going to play against El-Gaish in the final on Thursday.
