Raja Casablanca will be odds on favourites to progress into the final four of the 2018 Caf Confederations Cup at the expense of CARA Brazzaville.

The Green Eagles welcome the Congolese club to the Stade Mohammed V in Casablanca on Sunday evening in a second-leg 2018 Caf Confederations Cup quarterfinal clash.

Kick-off is at 18h00 CAT (SA, GMT+2).

The Moroccan giants head into the clash having defeated CARA 2-1 in the reverse fixture in Brazzaville last weekend.

Cabwey Kivutuka leveled matters for the hosts following Soufiane Rahimi's opener, but Raja walked away winners as CAFCC top-scorer Mahmoud Benhalib fired home his 11th goal of the campaign.

The Green Eagles have been almost unstoppable on home soil during the course of the 2018 CAFCC and scored 10 goals in their last two matches in Casablanca.

Following a goalless draw to AS Vita on matchday 1 in the group stages, Raja turned on the style with a 4-0 win over ASEC Mimosas before thumping Aduana Stars 6-0 in their most recent match on the Moroccan coast.

In stark contrast, CARA Brazzaville have been poor on their travels throughout the tournament and head to Morocco having lost all three of their away fixtures in the group stages.

CARA succumbed to defeat away to Williamsville AC, Djoliba AC and Enyimba in their last three games outside Congo.

Jean-Jacques Ndala Ngambo of the DR Congo will take charge of the match.
