Sierra Leone first-choice keeper Mohamed Kamara was subbed on in the 29th minute to replace Moussa Camara to make his CAF Champions League debut in Horoya AC‘s 3-1 defeat to Raja Casablanca at Stade du 26 Mars in Mali.
First-choice goalkeeper Moussa Camara was sent off after 26 minutes for a second yellow card after handling the ball outside the penalty area.
The Moroccans became the first team to qualify for this CAF Champions League quarter-finals after winning 3-1 away to Horoya AC on Tuesday.
A brace for Walid Sabbar and Mohamed Nahiri’s 42nd-minute goal was enough for the visitors in Mali.
Horoya pulled one back six minutes later, the first time Raja was conceding in the group stages when Pape Ndiaye shot from inside the penalty box after a good build-up.
Raja should have completely killed off the game with seven minutes left when they won a penalty kick when goalkeeper Kamara had brought down Naoufel Zerhouni inside the penalty box, but Mohamed Zrida struck his effort wide.
As a result, Raja’s maintain their 100 per cent record in Group with a maximum of 12 points. They are six ahead of Tanzania’s Simba, who moved to second after edging out Ugandan debutants Vipers SC 1-0 in the other group fixture in Dar es Salaam.
