Raja Casablanca head coach, Jose Romao, admits they found it tough against Kaizer Chiefs in their CAF Champions League first round, first leg tie.
Nigerian forward, Osaguona Christian Ighodaro, scored the only goal of the game as early as the fifth minute to seal the win for the Moroccan side.
However, the Casablanca coach feels his side did well during the opening 45 minutes against a good Chiefs side.
"I think it was a very difficult game for us, Chiefs are a very good team, but we are also a very good team," Romao said after the game.
"Everybody saw it was a hard game for us, It's true we scored very early but I think after that we controlled space, sometimes you lose some balls but I think the first half was not bad for us.
"We had a very difficult second half, but today was very good for us."
"We start to play more balanced, we're starting to be strong, in Casablanca with our support and our fans, it's better for us, but football is always football and 90 minutes is a long time and now we need to rest the players."
