Wydad leads ASEC Abidjan 1-0, and Simba’s hat-trick brings it closer to a Champions League farewell

The Moroccan team, Wydad Casablanca, ended the events of the first half against ASEC Mimosas of Ivory Coast, leading 1-0 in the match that currently brings them together in the sixth and final round of the group stage of the African Champions League competition..

The only goal for Wydad came from Montaser Lahtimi in the 18th minute of the match.

Wydad occupies third place in the group standings with 6 points, behind runner-up Simba of Tanzania with the same score of points. The Moroccan team’s chance was complicated by the Tanzanian team’s three-point lead over Botswana’s Galaxy in the first half.

The qualification calculations were complicated for the Moroccan Wydad team in order to qualify for the quarter-finals, and ASEC secured qualification from the group stage and also the lead, as it has one match remaining and has 11 points..

The Moroccan team does not have any chances of qualifying, other than achieving a victory over ASEC of Ivory Coast, while waiting for a surprise from the Botswana team, Gwaneng Galaxy, by defeating Simba, which excels in direct confrontations against Wydad..

Wydad Sports Club achieved a valuable victory over its host, Gwaneng Galaxy, Botswana, with a free goal in the match that brought them together in the fifth round of the group stage of the 2024 CAF Champions League..

I salute Wydad Athletic Club for its hope of qualifying and reaching the quarter-finals of the African Champions League, which it was keen to be in during the last eight seasons and won the title twice in 2017 and 2022.
