Al-Hilal draw with Raja to reach African Champions League semis

Sudanese giants Al-Hilal reach the CAF champions league semis after settling for a goalless draw with Moroccan club Raja

Mohamad Mosselhi, Sunday 18 Sep 2011

Sudan’s Al-Hilal booked a last-four berth at the Champions League following a goalless draw with Morocco’s Raja in Casablanca on Sunday.

The draw was enough to lift the Sudanese giants to the semifinal as Group A runners up with eight points.

Cameroon’s Cotonsport, who were fighting with Al-Hilal for the second group ticket to the semis, finished third on seven points after slumping to a 2-0 defeat by Nigeria’s Enyimba in Aba in Sunday’s other game.

Enyimba, who won back-to-back Champions League titles in 2003 and 2004, had already qualified as the group leaders. They finished the group-stage campaign with an impressive tally of 14 points.

They will face Moroccan outfit Wydad, who finished second in Group B, in the semifinal while Tunisia’s Esperance will play Al-Hilal.
