The Wydad of Casablanca crosses the iron this Saturday, August 31st with the Sudanese club of Al Merreikh, within the 16th King Mohammed VI Cup final of Arab champions clubs.
The Reds landed last Wednesday in Khartoum after a 28-hour trek. If the team is ready to start their season after their training camp in Marrakech, some key players will miss the call during this match. It is Salaheddine Saidi, wounded during the training course of the Atlas Lions and Ismail Haddad who did not accompany the Reds to the Sudden because of an administrative problem. The new WAC striker Kabongo Kasongo will also be absent because he is not registered on the Arab Cup list. This is also the case of Haytham El Bahja and Murushid Juuko.
The match, which kicks off at 7 pm, will take place on the pitch of the Al Merreikh stadium. It will be broadcast on Abu Dhabi Arryadia HD2.
