Wydad Casablanca’s playmaker Mohammad Ounnajem says they cannot afford to concede in Egypt as they visit Al Ahly for the first leg of their CAF Champions League final.
Ounnajem says their primary target is to do their best and ensure they wrap up the encounter at home next weekend.
Coach Hossam El-Badry’s men are buoyed by an impressive 6-2 thrashing of Tunisia’s Etoile Sportive du Sahel at home in the second leg of the semifinal last weekend.
“We will focus on avoiding a repeat of what happened last year against Zamalek. We will do our best to get a positive result in Alexandria and not leak any goals,” Ounnajem told a Moroccan television channel.
“In the second leg, we will have the advantage of playing before our hugely supportive fans.
“It will not be easy against Ahly; our group stage meetings were very tough.”
The Borg El-Arab Stadium will host the encounter at 19:00 (CAT) on Saturday, October 28.
