ASFAR make it four league wins on the trot as the Army club moves into 3rd place in Botola Pro

June and July have been excellent months for capital-based side ASFAR. The Rabat side have been in top form in Morocco’s Botola Pro with Sven Vandenbroeck’s team accumulating four consecutive wins and Sunday’s dramatic comeback against IR Tanger was the latest feather in the Royal Army club’s cap. Omar Jerrari equalized for ASFAR in the 29th minute after the hosts went down a couple minutes prior and substitute Brahim Dahmouni’s winner in the fourth minute of second half stoppage time was indicative of how the team cannot stop getting positive results. ASFAR are now in pole position to capture third place and a valued spot in the CAF Confederation Cup next season.

Last placed Renaissance Zemamra are doing all they can to continue a late season revival and a 3-0 home victory over Moghreb Tétouan moved RCAZ only two points away from escaping the relegation zone. Zouhair El Ouassli’s first half goal sent the hosts on their way and a late two-goal onslaught finished the job as RCAZ have now gone five straight matches without losing.

RS Berkane have had their struggles over the course of the season but veteran leaders Mohamed Aziz and Mouhssine Iajour provided important goals in RSB’s 3-0 win against Olympique Safi. Despite the inconsistency of the Orange and Green, RSB are back up to sixth place but returning to CAF competition next season is a difficult prospect with ASFAR’s 11-point lead and hot form.

Highlights of the three matches mentioned are below starting with ASFAR’s win.

ASFAR 2-1 IR Tanger

Renaissance Zemamra 3-0 Moghreb Tétouan

RS Berkane 3-0 Olympique Safi
