Morning – WAC-AS FAR summit postponed, OCS-DHJ derby launches debates


Trophy of the Throne Cup.

The final round of the Throne Cup is played this weekend. The debates are launched this Friday with the derby between the Safi Olympic and the Difaâ Hassani Jadidi. A shock that comes to the fore, after the postponement of the one between Wydad and AS FAR. For its part, RS Berkane began defending his title on the ground of CA Khénifra. Saturday in Casablanca, Raja hosts the Renaissance of Zemamra.

After the completion of the preliminary rounds between the Amateur Division and Botola D2 teams, the elite clubs entered the Throne Cup Round of 32. One thing is sure, the clash between the two most successful teams of the competition, namely Wydad Casablanca and AS FAR, was postponed to a later date due to the displacement of the WAC in Sudan, where he faces El Merreikh under the Arab Cup. So, the eyes will be riveted this weekend on another summit, the one between the Safi Olympic and the Difaâ Hassani Jadidi. The clash between the two neighboring clubs usually produces sparks. Despite the surprising departure of Hicham Dmiai, the OCS is determined to look good, especially against the regional rival, reinforced this summer by a mercato of choice, under the leadership of Badou Ezaki. Only negative point: the game will be played in an El Massira stadium behind closed doors, because of a penalty that drag the Safiots since last season.

Baptism of fire for Zemamra
The other match likely to grab the attention is the one opposing this Saturday at the Grand Stade d'Agadir, the Hassania Youssoufia Berrechid. Two teams that produced a quality football last season, with various fortunes, but with the same game philosophy focused on attack. The Gadiris have strengthened for their second successive African campaign and a win in the first official match of the season would give wings to Miguel Angel Gamondi's men. Opposite, Saïd Seddiki and his armada of young talents are in search of their first blow of radiance, after a first season in elite, that they started better than concluded.
Promoted to the first division, the Renaissance of Zemamra will step on the lawn of the Sports Complex Mohammed V, in what looks like a baptism of fire against Raja Casablanca. The Greens, competing in four competitions this season, have clearly ambitions of champions. But the Cup often has surprises and the RCAZ could well shake Raja.
As for the other promoted in D1, the Raja of Beni Mellal, his mission takes rather airs of farewell to the Botola D2, since the RBM confronts the Racing of Casablanca to Father Jégo, with as a common objective, a ticket for the round of 16 Eliminated prematurely from the Arab Cup, Ittihad Tangier does not expect to live the same mishap in the Throne Cup. But against Shabab Rif Al Hoceima, qualifying for the next round will not be easy for the men of Nabil Neghiz. The Algerian is said to be already in the hot seat and elimination against the CRA would cost him feathers.
