Today's Predictions for Wydad vs Al Hilal

Wydad and Al Hilal go head-to-head for a place in the Club World Cup semi-finals when they meet in the Moroccan capital on Saturday. Read our top predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

Wydad to Win

Current African Champions League title holders Wydad are a force to be reckoned with and the Moroccan outfit will hope to ruffle some feathers in this year’s FIFA Club World Cup. The Red Castle start their tournament with a second round tie against Saudi Arabian outfit Al Hilal on Saturday, and with the match taking place in Morocco’s capital Rabat, Wydad have home advantage of sorts to enjoy. That could make all the difference in this one, and our first prediction recommends siding with Medhi Nfati’s side in the match result market.

Bouly Junior Sambou to Score Anytime

Bouly Junior Sambou is a new face at Wydad and the attacker has already made a decent splash with the club, chipping in with seven goal contributions in 12 appearances in all competitions. The Senegalese attacker has rattled the net three times in his last two cup runouts for The Red Castle and the 24-year-old’s finishing skills make him an interesting prospect in the anytime goalscorer market this weekend.

Wydad vs Al Hilal Team News & Injuries

Read all of the latest injury updates and team news for Wednesday’s FIFA Club World Cup meeting between Al Ahly and Auckland City below.

Wydad

Wydad Casablanca are currently in second spot in the Moroccan league, though they managed to win the African Champions League for the third time in their history last term. They are currently managed by French coach Medhi Nfati. Keeper Ahmed Reda Tagnaouti, left back Yahia Attiyat Allah and midfielder Yahya Jabrane are some of their better players.

Predicted Lineup for Wydad: Tagnaouti – Benayada, Zola, El Amloud, Attiat-Allah, Hassouni, Jabrane, Aouk, Daoudi, Ounajem, Sambou

Al Hilal

Al Hilal are currently in second spot in the Saudi League and they are competing in the World Club Cup as their region's nominated outfit. Argentinean Ramon Diaz is in the managerial hotseat at the club at present and ex-Man Utd striker Odion Ighalo is their star performer in attack.

Predicted Lineup for Al Hilal: Al Muaiouf – Abdhulhamid, Hyun-Soo, Al Bulayhi, Al Dawsari, Carillo, Cuellra, Kanno – Vietto, Ighalo, Marega

Player to Watch – Odion Ighalo

Best known for his brief stint on loan with Manchester United a couple of years back, Odion Ighalo has been banging in plenty of goals for Al Hilal this season and the Nigerian forward could be one to watch closely again this weekend. The 33-year-old has notched in each of his last six appearances and he will hope to be fit enough to be involved on Saturday after an injury scare.
