The Confederation of African Football (CAF) decided to put off Raja’s game against Egyptian side Zamalek in the Champions League semi-final, as well as the final game of the competition, until further notice due to the spread of covid-19 infections among the Moroccan club’s players.

The second leg was supposed to be held in Cairo but had been postponed before as per a request from Raja after the Moroccan team’s squad had been seriously hit with covid-19. They had been placed under quarantine by Moroccan health authorities as many players and staff members returned positive test results.

The CAF earlier announced that negotiations with both clubs were in progress to find a solution that satisfied all parties: “Discussions continue between clubs & CAF experts to find a pattern complying with regulations and returning to play spirit. At this stage, the postponement of semifinal Zamalek vs Raja is certain. Constructive spirit on both sides.”
