The WAC-EST final will be played before the AfCON?

The final of the Champions League, which will pit Wydad Casablanca against Esperance de Tunis, should be played earlier than expected.

According to Egyptian media, this match will be played before the AfCON and will take place in Alexandria, at the Borj Al Arab Stadium. And to add that this match, which continues to make headlines, could take place on June 17.

Recall that the Confederation of African Football (CAF) decided after an emergency meeting of its executive committee in Paris, to replay the match between the Casablanca WAC and Esperance Tunis (EST) counting for the final return of the African Champions League.

The match will be replayed after the African Cup of Nations (AfCON) on a field outside Tunisia, said the advisor of the president of the CAF, Hédi Hamel, stating that the EST will return the Trophy and medals which were handed to him.

Disputed at the Olympic Stadium Radès (suburbs of Tunis), this final had a chaotic end following the injustice which the referee of the meeting, the Gambian Bakary Gassama, was guilty. He had indeed refused to grant the equalizer of WAC scored by Walid Karti in the 59th minute for a supposed offside without the possibility of resorting to the defective VAR to confirm its perfect regularity.
