Raja Casablanca will book their place in the 2018 CAF Confederations Cup quarterfinals if they avoid defeat at home to Aduana Stars at the Stade Mohammed V on Wednesday evening.

Kick-off is at 21h00 CAT.

The Moroccan giants currently occupy second spot in Group A with eight points, two less than AS Vita who have already booked their place in the knockout stages and two more than ASEC Mimosas who welcome the DR Congo club in Abidjan at the same time.

The Green Eagles suffered a 2-0 defeat away to Vita last time out to lose their spot atop the group standings, but could retake their place at the summit with victory in Casablanca coupled with a defeat for the Black Dolphins in the Ivory Coast.

Raja hammered ASEC 4-0 in their most recent home game and will be eager to build on that result as they set their sights on becoming the fourth Moroccan club to win the CAFCC title.

Aduana are already eliminated from this year's competition having conjured a mere win in five group stage fixtures. The Ghanaian outfit lost both of their previous away games, going down in Abidjan and Kinshasa.

Burkina Faso referee Juste Ephrem Zio will take charge of the clash.
