Read on for our best predictions for ES Setif vs Raja Casablanca.
Our Best ES Setif vs Raja Casablanca CAF Champions League
A 1-0 victory in the first game for both sides should be a good start to the tournament. However, the narrow win is not enough to guarantee ES Setif safety at the top. Our best picks for this game are as follows:
With both sides coming to this game with a 1-0 victory in the first match, we don’t expect an easy game. The team that wins this game will occupy the top spot in Group B. But looking at the latest performances of both sides, this will be a tough duel in Algeria. A draw at a half-time is a plausible outcome in this game.
The second possible outcome in this game is a draw at the break. We premise this pick on the defensive records of both sides. Losing only once and keeping five clean sheets in the last five games makes ES Setif a formidable opponent in this game. On the other hand, the visitors also lost only one game in their last seven outings. And while Raja kept only two clean sheets within that run, their defensive record shows they usually leak at most one goal.

ES Setif vs Raja Casablanca CAF Champions League Preview
ES setif and Raja Casabalanca will lock horns for the third time in all competitions. The last two encounters ended with both teams scoring. Interestingly, the two previous meetings registered a scoreline of 2-2. However, this could be a different game with a low scoreline at full-time.
The hosts come to this second game of the CAF 2022 Champions with a 1-0 victory and two clean sheets in their last five matches. However, ES Setif has failed to prove it is a team that scores lots of goals in a tournament like this.
On the other hand, Raja Casablanca will look to keep their 5-match unbeaten run going in this game. The visitors equally recorded a 1-0 win in their first game of this tournament. However, bagging another victory will depend on how they perform offensively against a stronger opponent. Notably, clean sheets have been hard to come by for Raja Casablanca so winning this game means they must fix their backline or risk defeat on the road.
The visitors have failed to win in their last five away games in all competitions. On the flip-side, ES Setif won all their last five home games. Here is how these teams will likely lineup for this important game.
