  • EPL: Soufian Boufal scored a great goal a la Maradona!

    (Ahram Online) Sofiane Boufal ran almost the length of the pitch to score a stunning 85th-minute goal at the St Mary's Stadium as Southampton beat West Bromwich Albion 1-0 in the Premier League on Saturday.

    The Moroccan midfielder picked up the ball just outside his own area and picked his way through Albion's midfield at pace before transferring the ball from one foot to the other and beating the diving Ben Foster in the opposition's goal.

  • CAF Confed Cup: Rabat stalemate hands Mazembe final berth

    (CAFonline.com) Holders TP Mazembe booked their place at the final after playing out a barren draw against FUS Rabat away on Saturday in Rabat.

  • Moroccans abroad: Boufal's stunning goal sees Southampton beat West Brom 1-0

    (The Associated Press) A stunning solo goal from substitute Sofiane Boufal lit up St Mary's as Southampton beat West Bromwich Albion 1-0 in the English Premier League on Saturday.

    The Morocco international ran fully 70 yards from inside his own half and left three defenders on their backsides — two of whom collided with each other — before curling the ball around Ahmed Hegazi and inside the far post to secure the three points in style.

    Boufal had been on the pitch only four minutes.

    It was going to take a moment of supreme quality, or abject stupidity, to settle this otherwise drab affair and thankfully it was the former as Southampton's record signing secured his side's second home win of the season with five minutes remaining.

  • CAF CL: Wydad relying on home form in African Champions League semis

    (BBC Sports) Wydad Casablanca will hope their superb home form in this year's African Champions League can carry them through to their first final since 2011.

    The 1992 champions have won all five of their matches in Morocco this season without conceding a goal.

    On Saturday, they host Algerians USM Alger in the second leg of the semi-final, which is poised at 0-0.

    Whoever wins will meet the victor of Sunday's game between Al Ahly and Tunisians Etoile du Sahel in Cairo.

    Etoile lead 2-1 from the first leg played on 1 October.

    Wydad coach Hussein Amotta has called on his players to take the game to USMA, who were runners-up two years ago as they reached the final for the first time in their history.

    "My players should focus on the technical, tactical and mental aspects because this is not a match where mistakes can be made," said Amotta.

    "So we have to pay attention to certain details. As the match will be in our stadium, we will be supported by our fans but, at the same time, we must show courage in attack while also having a strong defence."

    Saturday's game will take place at the Stade Mohammed V in Casablanca, which can accommodate 67,000 fans.

    USMA have yet to win on their travels in this season's Champions League but have drawn their last three away games in the competition 1-1, a result that would be good enough to take them through on Saturday.

  • Serie A: Benatia to miss Udinese

    By Football Italia staff

    Juventus defender Medhi Benatia will reportedly miss Sunday’s match against Udinese with a bruised ankle.

    Benatia was replaced midway through Juve’s 2-1 win against Sporting CP on Wednesday, and Tuttosport claims tests showed ‘heavy’ bruising to his left ankle.

    Although “it seems unlikely that he can recover” for the trip to Udine, the newspaper expects him to ‘definitely’ return against SPAL next weekend.

    The 30-year-old has made just three appearances in Serie A this season but completed 90 minutes in each of them.
