Wydad Casablanca captain: Al Ahly clash will be tough

Posted on June 30, 2016


’s captain has affirmed their encounter against Al Ahly, when they meet in the  group stage, will be a tough one.

Al Ahly are currently at the bottom of group A with zero points after the shocking start to their campaign, receiving two defeats against Zesco United in Zambia and Ivory Coast’s ASEC Mimosas in Alexandria, complicating things for earning qualification to the semi-finals.

On the other hand, the Moroccan side are topping the group with full mark after beating ASEC Mimosas and Zesco United but seeing Al Ahly’s results in the first two fixtures, Nakach thinks the Red Devils will be a stiff opponent when they face each other in matchday 3.

“Al Ahly want to return to compete on qualification for semi-finals, their first two losses will definitely toughen our game against them,” the 34-year-old captain told beIN Sports.

“We want to win against Al Ahly in Egypt and if this does not happen we will at least try to come out of the game with a positive result. Wydad is a big club and we are the group leaders, we want to make our fans in Morocco happy.”
