Wydad Casablanca hold firm for away draw in CAF Champions League final”

Al Ahly of Egypt were unable to build on a great start and had to settle for a 1-1 first-leg draw with Wydad Casablanca of Morocco on Saturday in the CAF Champions League final.

With ten minutes to play, WAC made a decision to sit back and soak the pressure from the Ahly attack as the introduction of Moteb could not change matters for the Egyptian side as the Moroccans resisted any form of attack to give a goal.

They were ahead inside two minutes when Abdallah El-Said teed-up Zakaria for a stunning volley from 30-yards. "Wydad managed to minimize spaces here, but that won't be the case in the return leg".

Azarou almost made it 2-1 fr Ahly after 30 minutes of play but was denied by Wydad goalkeeper Laaroubi who save Azarou's effort from close range.

Instead it was Wydad who hit back against the run of play in the 16th minute.

Wydad then settled and began to assert some pressure, finding an equaliser as Bencharki glanced a header past goalkeeper Sherif Ekramy from Mohamed Ounajem's cross on 17 minutes.

Ah Ahly went close twice in quick succession nine minutes into the second half, Zakaria mistiming one effort before seeing a second blocked following Ajayi's clever backheel from the byline.

Al Ahly looked to pick up the tempo in the second half and went in search of another goal as Wydad chose to sit back and look for the counter.

They will nevertheless return home happy to remain on level terms, Al Ahly substitute Emad Moteab having sent a strike from just outside the box whistling narrowly wide of the near post in stoppage time.
