After a heated confrontation in Rabat which inevitably ended with a (1-1) draw. Esperance Tunis will host Wydad Casablanca on Friday, May 31st in the final leg of the African Champions League. In order, to retain the title Esperance Tunis will have to content itself with a goalless draw. The team previously scored a consecutive streak of titles back in 1994, 2011 and 2018.
With an expected 50,000 audience from Bab Souika Esperance Tunis will be equipped with both audience and land factors. The team has previously won all five previous championships. Esperance’s squad will inevitably see the unavoidable absence of the duo Chamseddine Dhaouadi, Ghailene Chaalali as well as gatekeeper Moez Ben Cherifia due to disciplinary reasons.
Winning the competition in 1992 and 2017, Wydad Casablanca will undoubtedly have to content itself with any given result or achieve a 1-1 tied draw, in order to triumph in the podiums again. The visiting team will eagerly seek to avenge his lost match eight years ago against the hosting team. The task won’t be easy in light of his dismal results in his getaway match in this year’s fierce competition. Wydad Casablanca had only won once out of six games held outside of Morocco, with two draws and three apparent defeats. The players only scored three goals in those matches while conceding seven. Brahim Nekkach and Ashraf Dari will be absent because of the first getting a red card in his getaway match and the latter accumulation of warning cards.
