Moroccan club Raja Casablanca informed Zamalek officials of the date of the team’s arrival in Cairo in order to play the second leg of the semi-final second leg of the African Champions League competition.
The Yalla Koura correspondent reported that Al-Raja Club informed Zamalek officials that the team will arrive next Monday evening via a private plane to play the return match scheduled for next Wednesday at the “Cairo Stadium” stadium.
The Confederation of African Football (CAF) announced Friday that the return leg will be held on the fourth of next November at Cairo Stadium, after the match was scheduled to take place last Saturday.
The last period witnessed a crisis within the Moroccan team as a result of infection (14 players) with the new Corona virus (Covid 19), so the Moroccan authorities decided to prevent the team from leaving for Cairo.
“K”, in turn, decided to postpone the match to the first of November and then to the fourth of the same month for the return match. On the other hand, the African Union also decided to amend the final date to be held on the 27th of this month instead of the sixth of November.
Zamalek had decided the first leg in his favor by winning a goal without response in a meeting held at the “Mohammed V” stadium in Casablanca.
It is worth noting that Al-Ahly booked the qualification card for the final match after defeating Wydad Casablanca of Morocco (5-1) in the two matches, back and forth.
