The Moroccans were not happy with the PSL club back then as Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane stated how Wydad bullied their ball boys and match officials.
In a famous interview in January, Mosimane said that he was expecting the worst in Morocco in March. Fast forward to the game this weekend, and his team did end up losing 1-0 on Saturday.
However both clubs had already progressed to the quarter-finals and were playing only for the pride of topping the group.
Amid all the fierce rivalry, Sundowns striker Jeremy Brockie appreciated the fan support in Casablanca.
Brockie posted this video directly from the stadium in Morocco, where he was clearly enjoying the atmosphere.
