Ittihad Riadi Tanger make the trip to Stade Mohammed V on Sunday for the Botola meeting with home side Wydad Casablanca.
Our Wydad Casablanca v Ittihad Riadi Tanger predictions, statistics and match poll can be seen below (inc. the best betting odds).
Wydad Casablanca, following on from their previous result, will be hoping for more of the same after a 0-2 Botola triumph vs MC Oujda.
Their latest results show that much respect should be given to the Wydad Casablanca backline. Wydad of Nation have been miserly, with the number of goals that have flown into the back of their net during their past six outings standing at 3.
Ittihad Riadi Tanger
Following on from a losing effort in their last game against Difaâ El Jadidi in Botola competition, Ittihad Riadi Tanger and their travelling supporters will be hoping that they can get a better result in this one.
It has become apparent that Ittihad Riadi Tanger have suffered from a shortage of goals in their past six clashes, netting the poor return of only 1. In those matches, IR Tanger have also seen the overall goal aggregate of their opponents equal 9. With no two games being the same, we will just have to wait and see whether that trend shall be replicated in this next game or not.
Head to head
Checking out their prior head to head meetings going back to 29/04/2018, there has been little to separate the clubs with Wydad Casablanca winning 2 of those games, Ittihad Riadi Tanger 2 and 2 being drawn after 90 minutes of play.
A combined sum of 16 goals were scored between the two sides in these games, with 10 of them from Wydad of Nation and 6 for IR Tanger. That’s an average goals per game figure of 2.67.
Team News: Wydad Casablanca
There aren’t many personnel worries, with just a single fitness concern for the Wydad Casablanca manager Hussein Amotta to be concerned about due to a largely intact set of players. Muaid Ellafi (Nose Injury) will miss out.
Team News: Ittihad Riadi Tanger
In an otherwise healthy group of players, there is just a single fitness issue for the Ittihad Riadi Tanger boss to be concerned with. Hicham El Mejhed (Unknown Injury) misses out for this game. Tarik Asstati cannot play in this game through suspension.
It looks to us that Wydad Casablanca should really fashion enough chances to find the net more than once while possibly not conceding when they play Ittihad Riadi Tanger, who will be up against it to break down their defence.
We therefore think that it’s going to be a 2-0 winning margin for Wydad Casablanca at the end of this one.
