RAJA CASABLANCA ADVANCE TO AFRICAN FOOTBALL CONFEDERATION CUP FINAL

RABAT, Morocco – Moroccan giants, Raja Casablanca, qualified for the African Confederation Cup final, after defeating Nigerians Enyimba 3-1 on aggregate, on Wednesday.

Having secured a precious 1-0 away victory, the three-time African champions League winners, Raja, entered the game with great confidence in front of a packed Mohammed V stadium, in Casablanca.

Striker Zakaria Hadraf made the task of his team easier, scoring a goal at the very end of the first half.

In the second half, the Nigerians pressed to come back, but it was their defender, Oladuntoye Isiaka, who scored against his own goal, to give the Moroccans a comfortable advance in the 88th minute.

But after one minute, Enyimba scored their first goal, in the two confrontations with Raja, through Abdulrahaman Bashir.

This is the first final for Raja Casablanca since 2005, in the CAF Champions League.

Their last African trophy dates back to 2005, when they beat Coton Sport of Cameroon 2-0, on aggregate, in the last final of the now defunct CAF Cup.

In the final, Raja will face the Congolese side of Vita Club, who hammered Al Masry of Egypt 4-0 on aggregate.
