CAF Confed. Cup (Group D/ Match Day 6): Perfect Campaign for Raja After (2-0) Win over Zambia’s Nkana
Casablanca – Morocco’s Raja concluded a perfect group stage campaign, having their sixth win on Wednesday to finish Group D of the 2020-21 CAF Confederation Cup with maximum 18 points.
Morocco’s Raja finished the mini-league stage with a perfect record, having their sixth victory in as many matches, as they defeated Zambia’s Nkana 2-0 in at Mohammed V Stadium in Casablanca.
The Green Eagles gathered the maximum 18 points, scoring 13 goals and conceding none in what was a perfect group stage campaign.
Despite fielding a second-string side after already guaranteeing the group top spot, Raja took the lead through Riad Idbouiguiguine after 18 minutes, before Noah Sadaoui doubled their lead three minutes from halftime.
In Cairo, last year’s runners-up Pyramids FC finished the group second on 12 points, after beating Tanzanian visitors Namungo 1-0.
Nkana finished the group third on six points, while Namungo trailed the pack pointless and without even scoring in the campaign.
