CAF CONFEDERATION CUP Advantage RS Berkane as CAF hands them victory against USM Alger

The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has reportedly settled the controversy surrounding Algeria’s decision to prevent RS Berkane from playing the first leg of its CAF Confederation Cup semi-finals against the Algerian club USM Alger.

The committee decided to consider the Moroccan team RS Berkane victorious with a score of three unanswered goals at the expense of USM Algiers, setting April 28 as the date for the return match between the two teams at the Municipal Stadium in the City of Berkane.

It is noteworthy that the competent committee, composed of members of the Competitions Committee and the Legal Committee, met at noon on Wednesday in Cairo, Egypt, in order to make the ruling.

The news comes after the Algerian regime sparked frustration among football fans last week after disallowing the Moroccan club to wear their official jersey featuring Morocco’s full map.

The club was also stranded in an Algerian airport where their equipment, including the jerseys, was confiscated by Algerian security forces.

In light of the controversy, CAF announced on Sunday that the game was canceled apologizing for the inconvenience caused to its sponsors, TV partners, and supporters.
