Pitso Mosimane’s Al Ahly missed out on the chance of a record third consecutive Caf Champions League crown as Wydad Casablanca beat them 2-0 in the final on Monday night. Watch the highlights here.
Wydad got off to a strong start as Congo Brazzaville-born Guy Mbenza was foiled by the crossbar, but it wasn’t long until the Moroccans went ahead four minutes later as El Moutaraji unleashed a swerving thunderbolt which flew over El Shenawy and into the net.
Ahly clawed their way back and came close to levelling midway through the half when a Yasser Ibrahim header off a corner was just too high.
Ahly were dangerous from set pieces and Hussein el Shahat nodded narrowly wide off another corner.
The visitors again came close with Wydad goalkeeper Ahmed Tagnaouti dashing from his goalmouth to head the ball clear as South African Percy Tau threatened to equalise.
Wydad doubled the lead early in the second half, with El Moutaraji, once again, the executioner after a sweeping move.
