Moroccan side Raja Club Athletic were crowned champions of the Total CAF Super Cup 2019 for the second time in their history, defeating Esperance of Tunisia 2-1 last March at the Thani Bin Jassim Stadium in Doha, a game watched by more than 18,000 spectators.

It was the first time the one-off match was played outside the African continent.
