After being trailed 1-0 in the first leg of the Mohammed VI Cup semi-final by Ismaily Sporting Club, Raja Atlethic Club turned the tide by crushing their Egyptian opponent with 3 goals to 0 to qualify in final against the Ittihad of Jeddah.
The challenge was a sizeable one for Raja de Casablanca who had no room for error following his defeat in the first leg. The first half was not fruitful for the Greens who failed to open the scoring, despite the many opportunities that were offered to them.
Tenacious and determined to keep up the momentum, the Egyptians of Ismaily have left Ammouta’s men no respite. Frontal and offensive, their aggressiveness finally got the better of them since a fault on Sofiane Rahimi allowed the Casablanca club to open the scoring on the penalty of the captain, Mohsine Metouali.
A first goal that will have given RCA confidence. Indeed, the Moroccan club could count on the entry into play of Malango, which after three minutes later, materializes with a strike from the head (67 ‘).
Far from resting on this score, Raja continues to create danger and drives home the point with a third goal signed Mahmoud Benhalib (86 ′).
Raja will therefore have taken his revenge on El Ismaily and finds himself fighting for the prestigious trophy against the Saudis of Ittihad of Jeddah at the Moulay Abdallah sports complex in Rabat. A successful qualification that should bring more than $ 2 million to the club.
