Wydad Casablanca will battle with MC Alger in the CAF Champions League quarter-final second-leg match on Saturday.

Kick-off is at 18h00 CAT.

The encounter is set to take place at the Stade Mohamed V in the economic and business center of Morocco, Casablanca.

The first-leg match ended in a 1-1 stalemate as Alger came from behind to hold Wydad to a draw at the Stade du 5 Juillet in Algeria’s capital city, Algiers last weekend.

Midfielder Yahya Jabrane, who scored for Wydad in the first-leg clash, and striker Ayoub El Kaabi will be key for the Moroccan giants in the second-leg match.

Meanwhile, Alger will progress to the semi-finals for the first time since 1976 if they avoid a defeat in Morocco.

The Algerian club will look to defender Miloud Rebiai, who netted for Alger in the first-leg match, and striker Abdenour Belkheir in Casablanca.

The winner on aggregate between Wydad and Alger will face either South African giants Kaizer Chiefs or Tanzanian champions Simba SC in the semi-finals.

The first-leg clash between Chiefs and Simba ended in a 4-0 win in favour of the former in South Africa and they will now meet again in Tanzania on Saturday.

Burundian match referee Pacifique Ndabihawenimana will be in charge of the second-leg game between Wydad and Alger.
