Record champions, Al Ahly and Morocco’s Raja Casablanca will clash in the quarter-finals of the 2022/2023 CAF Champions League for a second consecutive season.

This was after the two North African giants were paired in Wednesday night’s draw.

The two teams also faced off at the same stage last season, with the Egyptians winning 3-2 on aggregate after a 2-1 win at home and a 1-1 draw in Casablanca.
