Wydad Casablanca Defeat Ahly To Lift African Champions League Trophy

Wydad Casablanca of Morocco became African champions for a second time when they defeated Al Ahly of Egypt 1-0 on Saturday in the second leg of the African Champions League final.

Walid El Karty scored the only goal on 69 minutes to give the home team a 2-1 aggregate triumph after they forced a 1-1 draw in the Egyptian city of Alexandria last weekend.

Achraf Bencharki, who equalised in the first leg, set up the goal with a deflected cross for El Karty to score his third goal of the competition.

The victory bridged a 25-year gap for Wydad, who conquered Africa for the first time in 1992 when they defeated Al Hilal of Sudan.

Wydad pocketed a record $2.5 million and are guaranteed at least another $1 million by competing at the Fifa Club World Cup in the United Arab Emirates during December.
