Al Ahly will face the White Knights at Cairo International Stadium on Friday night having qualified for the final after overcoming Wydad and Raja Casablanca, respectively.

Spain legend Michel Salgado, who previously worked as a member of the technical staff for the Egyptian national side, has now compared the upcoming clash to FC Barcelona meeting Real Madrid in the UEFA Champions League final.

"I have played in many Clasicos, around 19 matches between Real Madrid and Barcelona, and I know what this match means to all players. It's like a fierce battle. Al Ahly and Zamalek's game will be like the game of the century," he told Egyptian TV channel MBC Masr.

Scroll through the gallery below to see how Mosimane and his team is preparing for Friday's final:

"It's like when Real Madrid play against Barcelona in the Champions League final, and it's great that both Ahly and Zamalek are in the final.

"It shows us the strength of Egyptian football and its quality."

In the final on Friday, Ahly will be attempting to lift their ninth continental crown, while Zamalek could win their fifth CAFCL trophy, and former Mamelodi Sundowns coach Mosimane could lift his second CAF Champions League title – you can find an in-depth preview of the game in this week's edition of Soccer Laduma, issue 1201!
