Egypt’s FA announce date of Egypt Cup final

Egypt FA

The Egyptian Football Association () have announced that Egypt’s Cup final will be held on Tuesday, May 15 at the Borg Al Arab stadium.

After Zamalek managed to thrash Ismaily 4-1 in the semi-final, they’ll face either Assiouty Sport or Smouha in the final of the tournament.

Assiouty Sport have knocked Al Ahly out of the competition in the quarter-final and could very well be the dark horse of the cup, while Smouha overcame Wadi Degla in a 3-1 penalty shootout.

Zamalek, who reached their fifth cup final in the past six years, will be looking to win the title to rescue their disappointing season, which saw them finish fourth in the Egyptian Premier League standings and exit the CAF Confederation Cup.

While Zamalek are clear favorites especially with both Al Ahly and Ismaily now out of their way, Assiouty Sport manager Ali Maher, a former Ahly player, will be hoping to give the White Knights a tough battle if he managed to beat Smouha on Tuesday to reach the final.
