Al Nasr vs Raja Casablanca Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips


Goals are expected when Al Nasr face Raja Casablanca in the first leg of their CAF Champions League first round tie. Both teams have faltered at the back and often concede goals, making an outcome of over 2.5 goals likely.

Al Nasr SC Form & Team News


Al Nasr reached the first round of the CAF Champions League thanks to a 3-2 aggregate victory over Tempete Mocaf of Central African Republic. After suffering a 1-0 away defeat in the first leg, they ran out 3-1 winners in the return fixture with Moataz Al Mehdi netting a brace.

The Libyans head into Thursday’s clash in good form having gone unbeaten in seven of their last eight matches across all competitions. Fawzi Al-Issawi's men have kept just one clean sheet in their last six Champions League matches, making a bet on goals a good punt. 

Moataz Al Mehdi is likely to retain his place in attack following his brace last time out against Tempete Mocaf. He should be supported by Muhanad Alajeeli and Khaled Magdi, both of whom have impressed in recent matches. 

Raja Casablanca Form & Team News


Raja Casablanca needed a 7-3 aggregate victory over Gambian team Birkama United to book their place in the first round of the competition. They played out a thrilling 3-3 draw in the first leg before returning home for a 4-0 victory in the reverse fixture.

The three-time African champions have also impressed in recent matches and are unbeaten in 12 of their last 16 fixtures across all competitions. Patrice Carteron's men have also struggled defensively with six goals conceded in their last four matches, hence the tip on goals.

Ayoub Nanah netted a brace in the second leg against Birkama and should continue in attack on Thursday. He is likely to be joined by Mohsine Moutouali who was also on target in both matches against the Gambian side.

This will be the first ever meeting between Al Nasr and Raja Casablanca.

Al Nasr will look to Moataz Al Mehdi to provide the spark in attack following his fine showing in the previous round. He has a good understanding with Muhanad Alajeeli and Khaled Magdi and all three men should cause problems for the Raja Casablanca defence.

Ayoub Nanah and Mohsine Moutouali will be the ones to watch for Raja Casablanca after combining for four goals against Birkama. Both men have a combination and pace and skill and stretch the Al Nasr backline.
