Raja Casablanca finish Group stage with faultless record

Moroccan giants Raja finished the Group stage of the CAF Confederation Cup with perfect record, having their sixth victory in as many matches, as they defeated Zambia’s Nkana 2-0 in Casablanca.

The Green Eagles gathered the maximum 18 points, scoring 13 goals and conceding none to qualify top of Group D.

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 finished the group second on 12 points, after beating Tanzanian visitors Namungo 1-0.

Youngster Ibrahim Adel scored the game’s lone goal after 65 minutes making use of Ibrahim Hassan pass.

Nkana finished the group third on six points, while Namungo trailed the pack pointless and without even scoring in the campaign.
