The Confederation of African Football (CAF) condemned the behavior of the fans in the matches between JS Kabylie and Esperance de Tunis in Rades and Al-Ahly and Moroccan Raja in Casablanca in the second leg of the Champions League quarter-finals.
The Rades stadium witnessed unfortunate events on the part of the Esperance fans: fires caught fire, and the match was stopped more than once by the match referee.
A Moroccan fan was also killed in a stampede before a match between the Moroccan Rajah and Al Ahly.
“The scenes in Tunisia and Casablanca were unacceptable and we cannot allow this to happen in football,” CAF said in a statement posted on its website on Monday.
He continued: “We strongly condemn the unbridled behavior of some fans in Al Ahly vs. Al Raja and Al Taraja vs. J. S. Kabili.”
He continued: “CAF will refer the whole case to the judicial structure for further investigation.”
“The Champions League quarter-finals have been a stunning spectacle and an advertisement for African football. We’ve seen some exciting matches that have reaffirmed the appeal of African club competition.”
