The Moroccan club last won the trophy in 2017, 25 years after bagging the crown for the first time in 1992. Moreover, Wydad has been twice runner up in the competition, in 2011 and 2019.
The big question ahead of this highly anticipated game is will Al Ahly win the crown for the third time in a row?
