• CAF CL: Wydad Casablanca coach Hussein Amotta to change game plan for Champions League final

    (Africanfootball.com) Wydad Casablanca coach Hussein Amoutta reveals they will employ a different approach against Al Ahly in the second leg of their CAF Champions League final on Saturday.

    The two giants are fresh from a 1-1 draw in the first leg last week in Alexandria where the Egyptians scored through Moamen Zakaria, but Wydad equalised courtesy of Achraf Bencharki.

    Whilst Wydad are playing their third final, winning once and losing in 2011, Ahly will be making their 11th appearance at the final after tasting defeat twice in 1983 and 2007.

    “We are going to apply a totally different approach,” said Amoutta.

    “Of course holding Al Ahly away is a good result, but we have won nothing yet. It's a totally different match now and we have to prepare well as we're facing a team with great history and experience.”

    The encounter will be staged at the 60,000 capacity venue, Mohamed V Complex in Casablanca and the 48-year old coach will want to be victorious.

    Amoutta previously led FUS Rabat to CAF Confederation Cup glory in 2010 and looks poised to add another feat to his career.

    The winner will walk away with a cash reward of 2,500,000 US Dollars and a ticket to represent Africa at the FIFA Club World Cup in December in Abu Dhabi.
