Morocco’s Wydad Casablanca will seek to assert its supremacy when it hosts Petro Atletico of Angola on Friday in the second leg of the African Champions League semi-finals.
Wydad is close to reaching the final, which will be held in Morocco, with a 3-1 victory over Petro Atlético in Luanda, first leg.
On Thursday evening, Wydad will play the last training session, excited by his great victory in the first leg, to put forward the final that the Confederation of African Football (CAF) decided to hold in Morocco, after it became the only country that submitted a bid for hosting after the withdrawal of the Senegalese federation.
Coach Walid Regraki will be able to benefit from the services of defensive midfielder Jalal Daoudi, who completed a two-game ban, along with attacking midfielder Reda Jaadi, after recovering from an injury.
Wydad is looking for its third title in the tournament, which it last crowned in 2017, and before that it has to overtake its guest Petro, who the Moroccan team previously defeated in the group stage in Casablanca 5-1.
The match will be played in front of 35,000 spectators, instead of 45,000, after CAF punished Wydad for throwing projectiles against Algeria’s youth Belouizdad.
