Raja Casablanca will lock horns with JS Kabylie in the 2020/21 CAF Confederation Cup final on Saturday.


Kick-off is at 21h00 CAT.


The encounter is scheduled to take place at the Stade de l’Amitié in the economic center of Benin, Cotonou.


Raja reached the final after they edged out Egyptian side Pyramids 5-4 on penalties following a 0-0 draw on aggregate in a semi-final tie.


The reigning Moroccan champions are hoping to win the Confederation Cup for the second time having lifted the title in 2018.


Ben Malango, the DRC Congolese striker, is the player to watch in the Raja team having scored the most goals (five) in this season’s tournament.


Meanwhile, Kabylie eased into the final after thumping Cameroonian club Cotonsport 5-1 on aggregate in a semi-final tie.


The Algerian giants are hoping to become the first Algerian club to win the Confederation Cup, but they won a record three CAF Cup trophies.


The CAF Confederation Cup was founded as the merger of the CAF Cup and African Cup Winners’ Cup in 2004.


Kabylie will look to Rédha Bensayah with the Algerian winger having netted four goals in this season’s tournament.


The winner between Raja and Kabylie will qualify for the 2021/22 CAF Super Cup.
