Morocco’s WAC Routs Tunisia’s ES de Tunis En Route to AFL Final

Tunis – Morocco’s Wydad de Casablanca advanced to the final of the African Football League (AFL), after besting Tunisia’s Esperance Sportif de Tunis in penalties 5-4 (regular time: 1 -0), in the second leg of their semi-final, held Wednesday at the Hammadi Agrebi stadium in Radès.

Brazilian Rodrigo Rodrigues Silva scored the only goal of the game (66th minute), allowing the Tunisians to catch up from their first leg defeat (1-0) in Casablanca.

Ironically, the Brazilian missed the only penalty of the entire shootout, after a reflex save by Wydad’s goalkeeper Youssef El Motie, who offered the qualification to the Reds.

The second leg of the other semi-final will pit, this evening in Cairo, Egypt’s Al Ahly against South Africa’s Mamelodi Sundowns, winners in the first leg (1-0).
