Referee for Confederation Cup final second-leg announced
The first leg ended with a 1-0 victory for RS Berkane over Zamalek, following a last-minute goal by Togo international Kodjo Fo-Doh Laba.
The Whites are hosting the second leg of the final on May 26 at Borg El-Arab Stadium in Alexandria as they will be looking for their first CAF Confederations Cup title, with 30,000 fans are expected to attend the game.
A week prior to the game, CAF have announced the refereeing team set to officiate the highly awaited game. Ethiopian referee Bamlak Tessema Weyesa will be the main referee and he will be assisted by South Africa’s Zakaly Siwouly and Alhadji Malick Samba from Senegal.
The fourth official will be Tunisia’s controversial referee Al-Sadek Al-Salmy, who refereed earlier this season a game in the Egyptian Premier League between Pyramids FC and Arab Contractors.
Zambian referee Janny Sikazwe who was in charge of the first-leg, will be in the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) room, along with Gabriel Camara from Senegal and Sudan’s Walid Ahmed Ali.
