He added, “The Belouizdad Youth Administration will work in the coming hours to facilitate the movement of fans in order to support the team in this match.”
The reason for moving the meeting was not revealed, but press reports indicated that the real reason may be due to avoiding pressure on the team.
Belouizdad lost ′′ 1-0 ′′ at Mars Stadium in the last match, so his hopes of qualifying for the next round are held.
