It’s tomorrow, starting at 5 p.m., that this important part will kick off at the stadium of 1st-November of Tizi-Ouzou in front, certainly, of the bleachers full. After two straight defeats in this group stage against ES Tunis and Raja Casablanca, the JSK will have no choice but to win tomorrow if it wants to stay in the running for qualification for the quarterfinals. Another result that victory will mean elimination from the Champions League. The two teams approach the match in different conditions. Things are going pretty well for the Moroccan club which remains on two consecutive victories against AS Vita Club and the JSK and also a success against MCA, in the Arab Cup, unlike the Kabyle team which remains on a bitter elimination in the Algerian Cup after being beaten by AS Aïn M’lila, Sunday spent on the road.
The match not to lose
To validate their ticket for the next round, Saadou’s comrades must make a faultless match in the two home games against Raja Casablanca and ES Tunis and return at least with a draw point from his trip to Congo, the 24 of this month on the occasion of the 5th day facing the AS Vita Club. The least we can say is that the Canaries of Djurdjura will have no right to miss out on Raja Casablanca. They will benefit from two major advantages: the advantage of the field and the support of their public, knowing that these two advantages were not always the best arguments to seduce in the high level. It is still a parameter that can weigh in the balance.
A second objective at stake
For the Kabyles, it will simply be the game of the season. They lost the Algerian Cup and they only have the Champions League and the championship. They still have a chance to qualify in the next round of the prestigious African competition and give everything in the league to save the season. This is indeed the game that should not be lost. Admittedly, the JSK is going through a difficult period, following the events which occurred in Morocco and the elimination in cup of Algeria, but a victory tomorrow night against Raja Casablanca can arrange many things, at least on the mental level, and put some order in the house, because as we said before, beating Raja in the Champions League moreover is not like defeating any other team. But beware, a possible defeat risks hurting very much, be it psychologically or sportingly! If this second goal flies, the JSK can put the second knee to the ground and risk compromising its chances of playing the title in the championship.
Velud scans the game of Raja
At 24 hours of the match between his team and Raja Casablanca, as part of the 4th day of the group stage of the Champions League (Group D), Hubert Velud already has his idea to beat the Moroccans and stay in the race for qualification for the quarterfinals. Aware of the challenge of this confrontation, the coach has carefully studied his opponent to develop his action plan to counter it.
He reviewed the MCA-Raja match
According to our source, the French technician has reviewed several times, the match between Raja Casablanca and MCA, a few days ago, and this to have a precise idea on his next opponent and decrypt his game. Even if already has an idea about this team which remains on eight games without defeat in all competitions and after having faced it, two weeks ago in Casablanca, the first person in charge of the technical bar does not want to leave anything to chance.
