Simba Fall in Casablanca, Draw Set for April 5

Simba SC were in the early hours of Saturday beaten 3-1 by group leaders Raja Casablanca in a game that was more of a formality after both sides had qualified with a game in hand.

The game seemed to be headed for a barren first half when Hamza Khabba latched on to a ball in the 44th minute in the area after Simba’s Joash Onyango was slow to react.

However, upon resumption, parity was immediately restored in the 48th minute when Jean Baleke made it 1-1 on the scoreboard.

Khabba was on the score sheet again after he was brought down by Onyango in the area and the refree pointed to the spot, Khabba picked the ball and sent Manula on the wrong side to record his and Raja Casablanca’s second. The brace made him the competition’s top goal scorer with 5 goals.

The scoreline was stretched further in the 86th minute when Boulacsou was first to respond to an over the top ball to beat Aishi Manula on the near post.

The win meant Raja finished the group stage unbeaten after securing maximum 16 pints whereas Simba finished with 9 points.

In the meantime the focus now shifts back to the most thrilling phase of continental club football this weekend.
