Egyptian referee has been appointed to officiate the 2019 final between Wydad Casablanca and Espérance de Tunis.

The 43-year-old will take charge of the first-leg which will take place in Prince Moulay Abdellah Stadium in Rabat, Morocco.

The final will be Grisha’s second in the competition after the first-leg of the 2015 version, which saw TP Mazembe beat USM Alger in Algeria, before securing the title in DR Congo.

He will be assisted by Sudan’s Waleed Ahmed, Algerian Abdelhak Etchiali, and Seychellois referee Bernard Camille.

Grisha has also refereed the 2017 CAF Supercup final between Mamelodi Sundowns and TP Mazembe as well as two games in this year’s CAF Champions League.

The Egyptian was appointed for a group-stages’ game between Lobi Stars and Sundowns as well as Esperance’s 3-2 away victory over CS Constantine in the first-leg of the quarter-finals.

In the domestic league, Grisha has taken charge of 17 games, and has shown 67 yellow cards and three red cards, as well as awarding six penalties.
