CAIRO-30 October 2020: Confederation of African Football (CAF) announced on Friday that the game between Zamalek and Raja in the CAF Champions League semi-final second leg will be played on Wednesday 4 November.

CAF announced the news on its official twitter account, one day after postponing the match, which was scheduled on 1 November.

The second leg was initially scheduled on Saturday 24 October but CAF moved the match to Sunday 1 November as many Raja players tested positive for coronavirus.

Zamalek won the first game in Casablanca 1-0 thanks to a goal from their Moroccan winger, Achraf Bencherki.

The winner will face Al Ahly on 6 November in the CAF Champions League final at Borg Al Arab stadium in Alexandria.  

Zamalek fans aim to win the CAF Champions League title for the sixth time in the club's history and the first time since 2002.

In 2002 final, Zamalek won the title after defeating Raja Casablanca 1-0 in Cairo as the first leg in Morocco ended in a goalless draw.
