Wydad Coach Believes They Can Topple Kaizer Chiefs

Wydad Casablanca head coach Faouzi Benzarti is confident his team can overcome Kaizer Chiefs and reach the final of African Champions League.

The two teams meet in the second leg of the CAF Champions League semi finals at FNB Stadium in Soweto on Saturday afternoon.

Kaizer Chiefs, under the tutelage of former Bafana Bafana boss Stuart Baxter, overcame the Moroccan giants 1-0 in the first leg last Saturday, and will be looking to hold on to advance in the competition.

Despite facing a steep mountain, Benzarti was confident and optimistic about their chances of advancing into the next stage.

“We lost with one goal, we still have another match to play in South Africa, the VAR wasn’t used in favour of Wydad like during the previous matches,” Benzarti said in the post-match press conference.

“We’ll try to overturn this result in South Africa, I can’t fault the players, they gave one hundred percent. They were present mentally and physically but this is football.”

Benzarti, who boasts of 42 years of coaching experience, is the most successful African coach in CAF club competitions with five titles.

Not many football fans across the continent believes first-time semifinalists Chiefs have a chance of reaching the final at the expense of twice champions Wydad.
