Skipper Mohsine Moutaouali netted the only goal for Moroccan side Raja Club Athletic as they open their TotalEnergies CAF Champions League Group B campaign with a 1-0 victory over South African debutants AmaZulu on Saturday.

The home side got their opener in the 67th minute with the victory taking Raja top of the group with three points, same as Algeria’s ES Setif, who had earlier on beaten Horoya by a similar margin in Conakry.

Elsewhere in the competition, Egyptian side Zamalek scored a last gasp 95th-minute equalizer coming from two goals down to draw parity with Angolan side Petro Atletico in their Group D opener at the Borg El Arab Stadium in Alexandria on Saturday.

Mahmoud Hamdi levelled things up for the home team after their Angolan counterpart had raced to a two-goal lead by halftime.

Goals from Gleison and Vidinho, but the White Knights fought back with Ibrahim ‘Obama’ Youssef halving the deficit just 10 minutes after coming on before Hamdi won a point at the death.

ES Sétif, Wydad, Mamelodi Sundowns and ES Sétifienne all register opening wins from their various groups.
