Moroccan top team Raja Casablanca are looking for their first African triumph in the 20th century as they visit Al Ahly in the knockout phase of the tournament.
The Green Devils are 2nd in their league with forty points and three points behind Wydad Athletic Club who are in 1st position.
It was a smooth sail for them qualifying for the knockout face as they only lost once in their six group matches.
Having conceded only once in the group stage they managed to score seven goals overall.
Raja might not really get a win but they will try to score here just to give them a slight chance in the second leg.

Expert Betting Tips
Both teams met recently in the Super Cup and it ended in a (1-1) draw with Al Ahly winning on (6-5) penalties.
Al Ahly will always be the favourite in this encounter as they are more experienced than the visitors but we are concerned about their low scoring performance in their recent matches, they will try to take all the points here as gaining points away from home is harder, bet on the host win for 1.75.
Raja Casablanca are not known for an extravagant scoring team but they will play to score a minimum of a goal here to give them the advantage for the second leg, bet on both teams' scores for 2.05.
A correct score of 2-1 won't be bad here for 8.20.
