Our Top Free Predictions for Al Ahly vs Raja Casablanca
Al Ahly is the CAF Super Cup titleholder. The Egyptian outfit is also the side with the most titles (7) in the CAF Super Cup. Will they retain the crown in this fixture against the Moroccan side, Raja Casablanca? Here is how we have tipped these teams to perform on matchday.
Al Ahly to get a narrow win
This is one of those CAF fixtures you don’t want to miss. Two North African countries will square it out in this important match but based on how both sides have performed in this competition previously, Al Ahly is our favourite team to bag all points in this encounter. The Egyptian side comes to this match unbeaten in the last nine games, seven of which were victories. Moreover, Al Ahly registered four clean sheets within that duration. On the other hand, Raja Casablanca comes to this match with one loss, three draws and five wins in the last nine games. The visitors also kept four clean sheets in the last nine matches, which makes them a formidable opponent in this game.
In a final like this, we don’t expect many goals. Even with Al Ahly as our favourite side to win the match, we don’t think they will win it with a big margin. Both teams will take a cautious approach in this match, especially defensively. It is a battle for the titans on the horn of Africa so a few goals at full-time will be a plausible outcome.
Draw at the break
Our third prediction for Al Ahly vs Raja Casablanca is a draw at half-time. This is expected to be a tense encounter so we expect both teams to start cautiously as they build on their momentum. A deadlocked first half is, therefore, expected. Knowing that Al Ahly comes to defend the CAF Super Cup title, Raja Athletic will be most cautious not to concede an early goal in this important match.
