Zanaco will lock horns with Wydad Casablanca in the 2017 CAF Champions League Group D match at the National Heroes Stadium in Lusaka on Wednesday.

Kick-off is at 15h00 CAT.

Zanaco managed to hold Egyptian giants Al Ahly to a goalless stalemate in their opening group match at the Borg El Arab Stadium earlier this month.

The draw left the Zambian outfit placed third on the Group D standings with one point. They are two points behind the leaders Casablanca.

Kwame Attram, who played an important role during the qualifying rounds for Zanaco, will be looking to inspire his side to victory over Casablanca.

Meanwhile, Casablanca beat Cameroonian giants Coton Sport 2-0 in their first group match at the Stade Mohamed V in Casablanca earlier this month.

The victory took the Moroccan giants to the top of Group D with three points. They are two points above second-placed Al Ahly.

William Jebor was on the scoresheet for Casablanca against Sport and the forward will be hoping to score again and help his side defeat Zanaco.

Rwandan referee Louis Hakizimana will be in charge of the encounter between Zanaco and Casablanca.
