DOHA (Reuters) - Egyptian giants Zamalek won the African Super Cup by beating Esperance of Tunisia 3-1 on Friday to lift the trophy for the fourth time.
Achraf Bencharki scored twice for Zamalek, who had taken a early lead through Youssef Obama.
Esperance, who won last season’s African Champions League, equalised with Abdelraouf Benguit's penalty before Bencharki struck for the 2018-19 African Confederation Cup winners.
The result is a major boost for Zamalek who face Esperance again in a fortnight in the Champions League quarter-finals.
