#TotalCAFCCFinal: Soufiane Rahimi’s brace fires Raja past AS Vita

Raja Casablanca with a commanding 3-0 advantage ahead of the second leg of the CAF Confederation Cup against AS Vita next weekend.

The Moroccans already placed one hand on the title after earning a resounding victory in the CAF Confederation Cup final first leg, on Sunday night.

The result leaves AS Vita Club with a big challenge when they host the second leg in Kinshasa on Sunday 2 December.

A brace from Soufiane Rahimi helps Raja Casablanca took a comprehensive lead against Congolese side AS Vita.

Three goals in the second half turned the contest in the favour of Raja who were buoyed by a rowdy home support.

After struggling in the first half, Raja opened the scoring two minutes after the break with Rahimi tapping in from close range.

Just after the hour mark, Rahmi was on the spot again to double the Moroccan sides advantage.

Five minutes later Vita was reduced to ten men as Yannick Bangala picked up a second yellow for a clumsy challenge on Mahmoud Benhalib.

Benhalib stepped up and calmly slotted the ball into the bottom left-hand corner.

Raja will now head to Stade des Martyrs in Kinshasa in a weeks time to see if they can hold onto their advantage and lift the CAF Confederation Cup.
