We only had to wait until the 4e day of the group stage of the African Champions League to know the first qualified for the quarter-finals as well as the first eliminated.
This Tuesday, the Raja Casablanca indeed continued his faultless by disposing 3-1 of the Guineans of Horoya, forced to host this match in Bamako in Mali. A double from Walid Sabbar (6th, 63e) and a powerful free kick under the bar signed by Mohammed Nahiri (42e) allowed the Moroccans to take the lead despite the penalty missed by Mohamed Zrida at the end and the reduction of the opposing score of Pape Abdou Ndiaye (70e). Moussa Camara (26)e) and Jamal Harkass (45th + 4) were also excluded in this match which therefore ended ten against ten.
With 8 points ahead of Horoya, 3ewith two rounds to go, the RCA is sure to finish second in Group C, the worst. victory against the Ugandans of Vipers SC (1-0).
