Wydad Casablanca's captain Ibrahim Nakach says they will continue to cause all sorts of headaches for Al Ahly ahead of the second leg of their CAF Champions League final.

The two North African sides will meet on Saturday in Casablanca to determine this year's continental winner following a 1-1 draw last weekend.

Nakach said they are training to block the frontline of the Cairo giants in the second leg next Saturday and secure the title.

Ahly failed to take a first-leg home advantage despite their territorial dominance, losing the lead to settle for a 1-1 draw this past Saturday.

"We know Ahly will arrive in Morocco to score, but we are able to handle our home game," Nakach said.

"We will train well to block Ahly's efforts to score, and we will score to secure the title. We studied Ahly's tactics well and we managed to stop their wingers from reaching our goal.

"We will repeat what we achieved here in Egypt when we play the second leg in Morocco."
