The Confederation of African Football’s Emergency Committee met to decide on moving the 2020/21 Champions League semi-final between Raja Casablanca and Zamalek to a later date.
A source close to CAF confirmed that a verdict was reached via the committee’s votes on Wednesday, following an increasing number of positive cases in the Raja Casablanca squad.
According to leading CAF journalist Micky Jnr, CAF will make the announcement on Thursday 22 October.
“According to my sources, CAF will announce tomorrow the postponement of the second leg of this year's CAF Champions League semi-finals fixture between Zamalek and Raja Casablanca. The tie will most likely be played on 30th or 31st of Oct, 2020,” he tweeted.
