Wydad’s Nekkach: We are aware of Al Ahly game importance
Al Ahly SC is set to host the Moroccan side in their third Group A match, with the Red Devils in a desperate need of a win to keep their hopes alive in their pursuit of their 9th African title.
The Cairo giants have disappointed their fans with two consecutive losses, an away loss to ZESCO of Zambia and a home loss to Ivorian outfits Asec Mimosas, respectively.
On the other hand, Wydad are on much better footing, having secured all 6 points out of 2 matches and hoping to gain at least one more point in Egypt.
Midfielder Brahim Nekkach understands the importance of escaping from Egypt with at least a draw.
“My teammates and I have decided to leave Egypt with a positive result,” said the Moroccan midfielder.
Despite Al Ahly’s status in the group, Nekkach has said he believes that it will be a tough match.
