Wydad Casablanca vs Sagrada Esperanca CAF Champions League Predictions
This CAF Champions League game pits a Moroccan side against Angolan outfit. We have narrowed down to the best two picks for this fixture as follows:
Wydad Casablanca to win
We are tipping home win in this game. The hosts may have suffered defensive challenges in recent games but they boast a better scoring record than the visitors. On the other hand, the visitors have struggled to score goals in the last five games. The hosts netted 8 goals in the last five matches while Angolan side, Sagrada Esperanca only found the net three days in as many previous games. Home advantage should equally play to the advantage of Wydad Casablanca.
We don’t expect goals on both sides of the pitch on matchday. The visitors should take a defensive approach in this game if we look at their last five games. Playing away from home in the CAF Champions League is never easy but playing for a point should get Sagrada Esperance some confidence before the return leg. The visitors kept three clean sheets in their last five games while the hosts have two clean sheets in as many games.

Wydad Casablanca vs Sagrada Esperanca CAF Champions League Match Preview
The hosts come to this game with 2W, 1D and 2L in their last five games. It is a performance that should worry head coach Walid Regragui. And while hosts have home advantage heading to this game, a defensive problem that has seen them keep only two clean sheets and leak six goals in the last five matches should equally be the focus of Walid as he prepares his team for this important game.
On the other hand, Sagrada Esperanca is wary of a poor scoring record even as they make this trip to Morocco. The visitors failed to score in two of their last five games and only found the net thrice within that duration. With such a scoring record, the visiting coach must focus on improving his team offensively to get a result in this first leg group stage encounter.
Here are the expected lineups for both teams in this important CAF Champions League fuxture:
Wydad Casablanca predicted lineup: Tagnaouti, Allah, Aboulfath, Dari, Daoudi, Jabrane, Chrachem, Hassouni, Haimoud, Benyachou and Mbenza.
