Defending Caf Confederations Cup champions Raja Casablanca play host to Hassania Agadir at Prince Moulay Abdellah Stadium in Rabat on Sunday evening, in what is a must win game for the hosts.

Kick-off is at 18h00 CAT.

The Green Eagles head into the fixture having yet to win a group stage game in this year's tournament. Patrice Carteron troops occupy bottom spot in Group A, having accumulated a mere three points from four matches.

Raja have played to three draws in this sequence while also falling to a 4-2 defeat at home to RS Berkane.

Last year's champions were held to a 1-1 draw by HUSA in the opening round of group stage fixtures. Mouhcine Iajour opened the scoring in Agadir before Mehdi Oubila's equaliser.

HUSA currently sit a point above their Moroccan rivals and a point behind second placed AS Otôho. The third Moroccan club in the group, RS Berkane, lead the way on eight points and on the cusp of CAFCC progression.

Raja's struggles have reflected in the Moroccan league where they currently occupy sixth spot. HUSA sit in second, 18 points behind runaway leaders Wydad Casablanca.
