he Raja Club Athletic, Botola Pro team in Morocco, sacked head coach Rachid Taoussi on Thursday evening after the 2-3 home defeat against Olympique Safi on the 27th day of the first division championship.
According to some sources, this defeat conceded by Raja Club Athletic would have reduced the club’s chances in the race for the title of Moroccan champion to the detriment of its rival Wydad AC.
However, last week, the team formerly managed by Rachid Taoussi won against Wydad in the Casablanca derby.
Difficult for the management of Raja Club Athletic to digest such a defeat, especially since it was the Greens who opened the scoring through a penalty from Ahadad in the 10th minute.
The Safiots came back to the mark in the 21st minute with a goal from Hamza Khabba. The Green and White took control of the game in the 45th minute with a goal from Marouane Hadhoudi.
Returning from the break, the OCS managed to come back to the score in the 72nd minute with a goal by Djibril Ouattara.
With a draw, the Greens maintained their chances in the title race. But we had to wait until the 86th minute to see the Blue Shark club take over the reins of the game with a goal from Claudio Santos.
After this victory, Safi’s Olympic, 32 points, jumped to tenth place in the standings, Raja Club Athletic remained in second place with 53 points.
Wydad Casablanca takes advantage to maintain its status as leader with 56 points with one game less.
