In an eventful match on Friday, last year’s CAF Confederation Cup semi-finalists Hassania Agadir maintained their unbeaten 2021 with a 3-1 victory over Rapide Oued Zem in Morocco’s Botola Pro. A positive start saw visitors RCOZ open the scoring in the ninth minute when HUSA goalkeeer Abderahmane El Houasli’s poor clearance was sensationally volleyed home by by Soufiane Hariss.
RCOZ looked to be in good shape when HUSA’s Mehdi Oubila received two simultaneous yellow cards in the 27th minute but only a few minutes later the hosts equalized from the penalty spot. Rapide Oued Zem defender Hamza Hajji was sent off to make it 10v10 late in the first half and HUSA took control of the match from then on. Malick Cisse put the hosts in the lead in the 59th minute before Youssef El Fahli secured the three points with a penalty kick late on.
