Moroccan club Atlético Wydad's situation in the African Champions League has become complicated after they suffered their third defeat in the group stage against the hosts today, Tuesday, by two goals in their fourth match of the second group stage. Simba team in Tanzania.
In his first appearance with his new coach, Tunisian veteran Faouzi Bisetin, Vida conceded two goals in two minutes, scored by Cameroonian Isomba Onana (36 and 38). .
Simba, who lost to Casablanca in Morocco ten years ago, improved their points to five points with a clean goal, temporarily moving up to second place, one point behind Botswana's Gwaneng Galaxy who visited ASEC Mimosas. Côte d'Ivoire is in the lead (7 points), while the team has slipped, leaving Morocco at the bottom with 3 points.
Bisetin recently took over from local coach Adel Ramsey to coach the Wydad team for the fourth time, but failed to continue to correct the path of “Wedad Uma” in the three-time continental competition. Therefore, the issue of advancing to the quarterfinals becomes very complicated, because it must defeat the host Galaxy Galaxy, which will visit ASEC on February 24 and March 2, while waiting for its competitors to waver.
Bisetin has lost the services of captain Yahya Gebrane through suspension, an absence that has had a major negative impact on the midfield. Defender Amin Farhane is also unavailable and therefore relies on international full-back Yahya Ya'atiya Ara and Ayoub Ramloud, Algerian midfielder Zakaria Draoui, and attacking trio Saif Edin Bouhra Saif Eddine Bouhra, Montaser Lahtimi and Senegalese Sambo.
In the first group, the Mazembe team of the Democratic Republic of the Congo defeated the visiting team Nouadhibou of Mauritania with two goals from Cheikh Omar Fofana (80 and 90+3).
Mazembe extended the lead to seven points, while Nouadhibou's scoreline froze at four points in fourth, behind Egypt's Pyramids and South Africa's Mamelodi Sandans, who scored later.
