CCL: Ighodalo Brace Sends Kaizer Chiefs Packing

A brace from Ighodaro Christian Osaguona saw Raja Casablanca dump Kaizer Chiefs out of the CAF Champions League after the Moroccan side beat their South African rivals 2-0 in a second leg match at the Stade Mohamed V on Sunday night.

The result sees Raja Casablanca into the next stage of the CAF Champions League 3-0 on aggregate after winning the first leg 1-0.

The first 45 produced very little in terms of real goalmouth action as both teams defended well.
The hosts saw the majority of the ball early on, but they struggled to break down a resolute Amakhosi defence.

The closest we came to a goal in the opening half was when George Lebese saw his shot form
the edge of the box deflected narrowly wide of the Raja Casablanca goal.

The home side did not really threaten the Amakhosi goal – their only attempt came just after the half hour mark when a shot from Vivien Mabide was blocked on the goalline by captain Tefu Mashamaite.

Chief suffered a bit of a set-back a minute before the break when Morgan Gould had to leave the field injured and was replaced by Erick Mathoho.

The half ended 0-0, but saw Raja Casablanca leading 1-0 on aggregate.
