Wydad Casablanca is Caf Super Cup winner


Wydad Casablanca of Morocco on Saturday won their first-ever African Super Cup, with a goalless draw against TP Mazembe of the DRC, three times winner of the competition.

The match took place at Stade Mohamed V at Casablanca in Morocco.

It has been a good run for Moroccan football in the last months.

Wydad become the third Moroccan club to win the competition contested between the CAF Champions League and the CAF Confederations Cup winners after their bitter rivals Raja Casablanca and Maghreb Fez.

Cheered on by 45,000 crowd inside the Morocco’s oldest stadium, Wydad showed early intent and pinned the visitors in their own half in search of the opener.

Mazembe, who are three times champions had Ivorian goalkeeper Sylvian Gbohouo to thank for his heroic saves to deny Wydad attackers.

Their luck almost melted away when the hosts were deservedly awarded a penalty in the 53rd minute ,but for the intervention of Gbohouo who rose to the accession to save the day by smashing away El Karti’s kick.

Wydad Casablanca completes a long list of victories with 19 Championship titles, two Champions League titles and a Cup Winners’ Cup
