The coach of Raja said: “I am proud of the player’s performance against Zamalek. They did not fail, despite our absences.”
“The result of the match is unfair, and at least we deserved a draw,” he added in his statements during the press conference.
“The referee was right in his arbitration decisions and we were denied at least a penalty,” he said.
He continued, saying, “One team was in the stadium, and it is Raja.”
“In the second half, we completely controlled the game, but we missed the final touch, and this happens in football,” he said.
The goal of Zamalek’s victory came through the wonderful as usual, Ashraf Bencharki, in the 18th minute, from an elaborate header after a cross and no more wonderful than Zizou.
On Saturday, Morocco was colored in the colors of Al-Ahly, who defeated Wydad with a double, and on Sunday, it was colored in the colors of Zamalek, who defeated Raja with a goal for nothing.
Zamalek is preparing to host Raja next Saturday in the return match.
