Raja Casablanca are out to cement their top spot at the summit of Group A when they host ASEC Mimosas in the CAF Confederation Cup on Sunday night.

The Moroccans have five points at number one in the group from a single win and two draws in their campaign so far.

Casablanca opened their campaign with a 0-0 draw against AS Vita Club, but bounced back against Aduana Stars in a 3-3 draw.

In their third game last week, they managed to fight for their first win away in Abidjan to secure their spot in the top spot.

A win for the North Africans will elevate them to eight points and take them closer to their ambition of reaching the knockout stages.

Looking at the visitors, Mimosas sit at the bottom of the of the group with three points and will be chasing their second win.

The Cote d’Ivoireans are under pressure to secure their second win, but the going is getting tougher for them.

In their campaign so far, they managed to beat Aduana Stars and lost to Vita Club 3-1, as well as their loss at home last week.

Mimosas will have to bag a win and have six points to push for a spot at number two, but their fate will depend on how Vita Club and Stars fare in their matches on Sunday afternoon.

The encounter will be staged at Stade Mohammed IV on Sunday at 21:00 (CAT).
