Morocco’s Raja Reports 1st COVID-19 Case among the players.

Ahead of Zamalek’s Champions League clash in the semi-finals, Morocco’s Raja have reported a first coronavirus case among the players.

Moroccan reports said on Friday that the results of the coronavirus swabs, which have been taken from the players and technical staff in the club, showed that player Abdelilah Madkour has tested positive for the respiratory disease.

The White Knights are set to take on the Moroccan team on September 25 in Casablanca in the first leg, while the second leg will be at Cairo Stadium seven days later.

Meanwhile, Morocco’s club Wydad, who are set to clash against Al Ahly, have reported on Thursday fourteen coronavirus cases.

Last week Morocco’s National Professional Football League (LNFP) decided to postpone three 22nd-day matches. The matches between Olympic de Khouribga and Ittihad Tanger, AS FAR and Wydad de Casablanca, and Raja de Casablanca and Rapide Oued Zem will be rescheduled.

A press release on the FRMF’s official website explained that the postponements are in accordance with the decision to place the players of Ittihad Tanger, Wydad, and Rapide Oued Zem in confinement.

The LNFP previously postponed 21st-day matches between Ittihad Tanger and Renaissance of Berkane and FUS Rabat and Raja of Beni-Mellal.
