CAF Reschedules Champions League Semis After Covid19 Spike In Morocco

Football governing body in Africa, CAF, has rescheduled the semifinals of the Champions League.

The first leg of the semi-finals were meant to be held on September 25th and 26th in Morocco, while the second leg was supposed to take place on October 2nd and 3rd in Egypt.

However, CAF has walked back on the initial decision after Covid19 infections have spiked in Morocco.

Over 1450 have been confirmed dead in Morocco so far due to Covid19.

CAF’s Executive Committee has hence concluded to move the semis to October 16/17 and 23/24. As it was initially, the first legs will be in Morocco and the return legs in Egypt.

The Final is set to November 6th, 2020.

Both semis involve Morocco and Egyptian clubs.

Raja Casablanca face Zamalek while Wydad Casablanca will battle Al Ahly.


Prior to the Executive meeting, CAF had informed the participating teams about an imminent postponement.
