    Rabat, Morocco – (African Boulevard News) – In an intense quarter-final, second-leg clash, FAR Rabat of Morocco gave it their all but fell short against USM Alger of Algeria in the TotalEneriges CAF Confederation Cup. Despite securing a 1-0 win, FAR Rabat’s 2-0 loss in the first leg proved too big an obstacle to overcome, and they ended up bowing out of the tournament.

    The game took place on Sunday night in Rabat, and FAR Rabat came out of the gates strong. They were determined to score, and it showed in their play. Their hard work paid off in the 10th minute when they finally got their goal. Hamid Ahadad was the scorer and gave FAR Rabat what they needed to build momentum. They continued to press, hoping for another goal, but USM Alger were equal to the task and kept them at bay.

    Despite being up 1-0, FAR Rabat knew they had their work cut out for them. They needed to score another goal to level the aggregate and take the game to penalties. They threw everything they had at USM Alger, but the Algerians defended resolutely and refused to let them score.

    The game ended 1-0 in favor of FAR Rabat, but it was not enough to book their spot in the semi-finals. FAR Rabat coach, Walid Regragui, was proud of his team’s effort but acknowledged that they had come up short. He said, “We fought hard and gave it everything we had. We leave the competition with our heads held high, knowing that we gave it our all.”

    USM Alger coach, Francois Ciccolini, was relieved to make it through to the next round. He said, “It was a tough game, and FAR Rabat gave us a real challenge. We’re pleased to get through to the next round, but we know that we need to improve if we’re going to make it to the final.”

    In conclusion, FAR Rabat gave their all, and although they won the game, it was not enough to overcome the first-leg deficit. They can hold their heads high, knowing they gave it everything they had. USM Alger, on the other hand, will be looking to improve as they head into the semi-finals of the TotalEneriges CAF Confederation Cup.
