Raja Casablanca will be desperate to avoid another disappointing day at the office when they take on RS Berkane at Stade Municipal de Berkane on Sunday evening.

Kick-off is at 21h00 CAT.

The defending CAFCC champions are in real danger of being knocked out of this season's competition at the group stages heading into the fourth round of fixtures.

Raja have yet to win a game from their allotted matches thus far and currently occupy bottom spot in Group A, five points adrift of their Moroccan rivals and this weekend's opponents.

Following successive draws against Hassania Agadir (1-1) and Otôho d'Oyo (0-0), The Green Eagles fell to a 4-2 defeat at home to RS Berkane in Rabat last weekend, as their hopes of defending the title they won last year took a massive blow.

Mouhcine Iajour scored a brace for Raja, but they were unable to contain their visitors as Patrice Carteron and his troops now seek for immediate revenge in Berkane.

The Oranges followed a 1-1 draw in Congo with a 2-1 win over HUSA before last weekend's impressive result in the Moroccan capital.

RS Berkane now know that victory over Raja on Sunday will more than likely book their place in the knockout stages of this season's competition.
