CAF Champions League Final: Pitso Eye 4th Title

Monday, May 30
•Al Ahly (Egypt) Vs Wydad Casablanca (Morocco) – 10pm

Al Ahly coach Pitso Mosimane will be seeking to win a fourth CAF Champions League title as his side take on Wydad Casablanca in Monday’s final at the Mohamed V Stadium in Casablanca, Morocco.

The South African tactician won his first CAF Champions League title with Mamelodi Sundowns in 2016.

He later won his two with Al Ahly in 2020 and 2021, where he wants to his fourth against Wydad.

If that comes to pass, Pitso will equal former Al Ahly coach Manuel José who won four CAF Champions League titles in 2001, 2005, 2006 and 2008.

Pisto is quoted by CAF ahead of Monday’s final: “When we came from Cairo, we came here to win. Unfortunately we didn’t win against Raja when we played them here but we believe we can win this time. We are Al Ahly and I am not saying it will be easy.”

“It will be difficult just as it was against Raja. But we are a serious team so you should be careful when playing against us.”

Sundowns came second in Group A behind Sundowns, in a group that also had Al Hilal and Al Merrikh.

They then eliminated Raja Casablanca 3-2 on aggregate and ES Setif 6-2 in quarter and Semifinals respectively.

Wydad on the other hand, topped Group D ahead of Petro De Luanda, Zamalek and Sagrada.

They knocked out CR Belouizdad and Petro to storm the final.

Al Ahly, who have won the title 10 times, are set to become the first side to win the competition in three consecutive seasons – They beat Zamalek (2019-20) and Kaiser Chiefs (2020-21) previously.
