The semi-final return match between Zamalek of Egypt and Raja Casablanca of Morocco was adjourned from November 1st to a date to be decided because of the COVID-19 infection which inflicted many of the Raja squad, leaving only 10 fit players.

Zamalek lead 1-0 from the first leg in Casablanca with Moroccan Achraf Bencharki scoring the only goal midway through the first half.

CAF also announced that the final between Zamalek or Raja and Al Ahly of Egypt, scheduled for an Egyptian venue on November 6, has been postponed indefinitely.
