Al-Ittihad Football Club has qualified for the Libyan Cup final after the withdrawal of its classic rival Al-Ahli Tripoli.

Al-Ahli chose not to play the match, which was scheduled for Sunday in Zawiya city.

The referee waited for the regular time before blowing the whistle and declaring Al-Ittihad winners of the match. Al-Ittihad will face from Benghazi in the cup final.

The Libyan Football Federation decided to replay the match in Zawiya, after shameful acts by Al-Ahli fans who ransacked Tripoli Stadium in two occasions, forcing the LFF to transfer the game to Zawiya city, however, Al Ahli decided not to play, giving Al Ittihad the win by 2-0 according the LFF regulations.
