• CAF CL: Champions League: Wydad coach Hussein Amotta wants to put pressure on Al Ahly defence

    After playing to a 1-1 draw against Al Ahly in the first leg of the CAF Champions League final on Saturday, Wydad Casablanca coach Hussein Amotta expects a tough second leg clash against the Red Devils.

    Amotta said he is planning to turn the tables by putting all the pressure on the Egyptian giants in the return fixture this weekend.

    “We achieved a milestone leaving Alexandria with a draw under these circumstances,” said Amotta.

    “With all these fans, and against one of Africa’s finest most experienced clubs, a draw was a great result.

    “It won’t be an easy game, but we will be more relaxed and we will have to work on scoring first this Saturday.

    “Al Ahly have one of the best front lines in Africa, so it would be illogical to sit back and defend against them.

    “Now that we know the flaws in Al Ahly’s defence, we will put pressure on them from the start. Yet at the same time we need to leave them no space for counter-attacks at the back.”

    The return leg will be staged on Saturday, November 4 at Complexe Mohammed V Stadium in Casablanca.
