Wydad AC are set to host Saudi Arabian outfit AlHilal on Saturday in the Club World Cup at the Prince Moulay Abdellah Stadium in Rabat.
The stakes are high as the winners will seal a spot in the last four of the competition.
Moroccan giants Wydad have the opportunity to become the first African club to reach the semi-finals of the competition since Raja Casablanca in 2013. Under the able guidance of Mehdi Nafti, they have flourished in the Botola League as they trail leaders FAR Rabat by just two points.
Meanwhile, Al Hilal emerged victorious at this stage in their past two appearances in the competition as they defeated Al Jazira 6-1 in the previous campaign after getting the better of Esperance de Tunis 1-0 in 2019.
However, their 11-match unbeaten run was ended when they were defeated 1-0 by Al Feiha in the semi-final of the Saudi Super Cup in their last outing and The Leaders will look to get back to winning ways with a victory over Wydad.
