The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) refuses to annul the defeat of the Capital Sports Union in the first leg

The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) on Tuesday rejected the request of the Algerian Football Federation and the Capital Sports Union (USMA). The CAS refused the urgent request of the Algerian Federation and the USMA to overturn the decision of the appeal committee of the Confederation of African Football (CAF) which condemned the USMA to a defeat in the first leg of the semi-finals of the African Football Confederation Cup against the Moroccan club Renaissance Berkane.

CAF decided last Wednesday to consider USMA as a 3-0 loser in the first leg, before the same decision was taken in the return match after the refusal of the Algerian team to play in Berkane in protest against the presence of the complete map of Morocco on the Moroccan club jersey.
