The African Champions League final was postponed on Thursday for the second time, with the second semifinal match also being pushed back amid the coronavirus pandemic.

CAF had announced that the return leg between Zamalek and Raja has been postponed to the first of November, with the final of the Champions League to be played as scheduled, on November 6.

Raja had announced that two unnamed players have tested positive for COVID-19, just one day before their first leg clash against Zamalek.

And two days later, the Moroccan giants announced six new cases of the novel Covid-19 were discovered following a new round of testing, the thing which pushed CAF to postpone the second leg semifinal.

Now CAF have apparently decided to also postpone the final showdown of the competition to late November, without clear reasons being cited.

Fullview has it in good authority that the final of the Champions League is now set to be played on November 27 instead of November 6 at Borg Al Arab Stadium in Alexandria.

Meanwhile, the second leg match between Zamalek and Raja was also postponed for another two days to take place on November 3 instead of November 1.

The winner of this tie will play the final against Al Ahly, who had eased past Wydad in the semifinal with a 5-1 victory on aggregate.
