Raja Casablanca became the first team to book their quarterfinal ticket in the 2020-21 CAF Confederation Cup on matchday 4 after a comprehensive 3-0 victory over Egypt’s Pyramids FC in Cairo.

Algerian league leaders ES Setif registered their first victory in the group stage in an all-important match against Nigerian club Eniymba FC in Setif. Amir Karaoui, Mohamed El Amine Amoura and Akram Djahnit scored to give the home team a 3-0 win.

This result means that Setif now move onto 4 points, tied with Al-Ahly Benghazi in 3rd, while Enyimba drop to 2nd place with 6 points.
