Casablanca (Morocco) – Al-Ahly will be under pressure in the second leg of the CAF Champions League final tomorrow Sunday, Moroccan Wydad coach Sven Vandenbrouck said, insisting his team will arm itself with the support of fans eager to retain the title. .
Wydad will host the return leg in Casablanca after losing the first leg 2-1 in Cairo last week and will be looking forward to defending the continental title they won last season at the expense of the Egyptian side.

He added, “We came back from Egypt 2-1, which gives us many chances because the goal we scored away from home was very important.”

The realities of tomorrow’s match will be different in light of the match at our stadium in front of 60,000 fans… We have nothing but victory, so the point is clear, it needs to score at least one goal. goal,” Vandenbrouck said.
