Ahead of their crunch second leg, semifinal encounter against USM Alger in the CAF Champions League on Saturday night, Wydad Casablanca coach Hussein Amotta has encouraged his troops to remain focused.

Wydad will hope their superb home form in this year's CAF Champions League can carry them through to their first final since 2011.

Although it will be a challenging encounter, the 1992 champions have won all five of their matches in Morocco this season without conceding a goal.

They face a tough test, though, against the Algerians after the the opening leg ended 0-0.

"My players should focus on the technical, tactical and mental aspects because this is not a match where mistakes can be made," said Amotta to the BBC.

"So we have to pay attention to certain details. As the match will be in our stadium, we will be supported by our fans but, at the same time, we must show courage in attack while also having a strong defence."

The match will take place at the Stade Mohammed V in Casablanca at 22:30 (CAT).
