CAF Champions League: Wydad Athletic Club And Hearts Of Oak Second Leg To Be Played Behind Closed Doors

Moroccan club Wydad Athletic Club is set to host Hearts of Oak in the second leg of the second preliminary round of CAF Champions League behind closed doors, according to reports.

Wydad AC will host Hearts of Oak on Saturday 23 October 2021 in Casablanca, Morocco.

Reports suggest that CAF has ordered for the game to be played behind closed doors due to the COVID-19 situation in the North African country.

Only accredited persons will be allowed to the match venue for the game on Saturday.

The Moroccan giants will try to overturn a 1-0 deficit at the Mohamed V Stadium at 19:00 GMT.

Ghanaian champions Hearts of Oak secured a 1-0 home triumph over Moroccan side Wydad Casablanca in their CAF Champions League clash on Sunday. Isaac Mensah’s first-half goal earned the Phobians victory in the first round, first leg fixture at the Accra Sports Stadium.

Samuel Boadu’s men will head into Saturday’s second leg away from home with a narrow advantage, where the ultimate aggregate winners after two legs secure a ticket for the group stage of the competition.
