Team News: Rapide Oued Zem
Almost everyone can be considered, as there’s just one fitness concern for the Rapide Oued Zem manager to be concerned with from an otherwise fully-primed squad. Hicham Marchad (Unknown Injury) misses out.
Team News: Wydad Casablanca
Due to a completely injury-free squad available to choose from, Wydad Casablanca manager Hussein Amotta does not have any fitness concerns to speak of coming into this match.
We envisage that Wydad Casablanca will, in all probability, see a lot of the ball and convert quite a few goal-scoring opportunities.
Conversely, Rapide Oued Zem may well struggle to make a breakthrough, although we do think that it’s probable they’ll be pulling one back during this clash.
Accordingly, we see a comfortable 1-3 victory for Wydad Casablanca at the end of this one.
