Al Ahly are looking for their eighth Super Cup title

Al Ahly face Raja Casablanca at the Ahmed bin Ali Stadium in Al Rayyan, Qatar, for the 2021 CAF Super Cup final looking to retain their crown.

The Red Devils are the most successful team in the competition with seven titles, including one in 2020, their first in six years. The side is now aiming for a second in a row.

They qualified after winning the 2021 CAF Champions League while their Moroccan counterparts earned a place in the match after clinching the 2021 CAF Confederation Cup final.

This will also be the fourth (second consecutive) clash between an Egyptian and a Moroccan side in the competition. On all previous occasions, the Egyptian side have ended up winning the title.

Al Ahly vs Raja Casablanca Head-To-Head

This will be the seventh meeting between the North African sides, but the first in the Super Cup. All six of their previous encounters came in the CAF Champions League.

Raja Casablanca won two matches, including a famous victory in Cairo during their successful campaign in 1999, while Al Ahly have won only once.

That was a 1-0 win in 2005, the year Al Ahly won the continental title.
