Ahly to face Berkane in Qatar-CAF super Cup

The halted CAF Super Cup match between Al Ahly of Egypt and Renaissance Berkane of Morocco will be played on May 28 in Doha, the organisation  has confirmed.

The pandemic and controversies over the venue led to several postponements of the annual fixture between the winners of the CAF Champions League and the second-tier CAF Confederation Cup.

Last November, Ahly beat Zamalek 2-1 in an all-Egypt Champions League final and Berkane edged another Egyptian club, Pyramids, 1-0 to lift the Confederation Cup.

This will be the third consecutive Super Cup match to be staged in Qatar, which will host the 2022 World Cup, the first to be staged in the Middle East.

Previously asked why an African match was being played in Asia, a CAF official said taking the game outside the continent helped to “broaden the appeal of the Super Cup”.

 

 

Previously, the match was hosted by the African champions, leading them to win 21 of 23 matches between 1996 and 2018, But the recent  switch to Doha saw consecutive victories by the Confederation Cup title-holders, Raja Casablanca of Morocco and Zamalek.

Meanwhile, Ahly have won the Super Cup a record six times in eight appearances while Berkane are debutants.
