Pitso makes history in Casablanca

CAF Champions League

Pitso Mosimane managed to secure a personal milestone on his CAF Champions League debut with Al Ahly as they put one foot into the final at the expense of Wydad Casablanca.

In the build-up to the first leg semi-final tie, Mosimane's record of five games without a win dominated headlines in North Africa but he maintained that he may not have found success in Morocco but the Red Devils have.

And their performance at the Stade Mohamed V on Saturday night exemplified their professionalism and intent to secure the record ninth title that's eluded them since 2013.

Magdy Afsha's goal in the opening five minutes after a defensive lapse of concentration set the tone, captain Mohamed El Shanaway's double penalty save built conviction and Ali Maaloul's second-half penalty sealed the result.

After masterminding a tactical masterclass over a subdued Wydad led by former Mamelodi Sundowns head coach Miguel Gamondi, the five-time South African league winner said; "I'm very happy with the result but I would have been happier if we had scored more goals."

Knowing fully that a comeback could still be on the cards for the Botola giants in Cairo next week, the 56-year-old has opted to remain composed before finishing off the tie where they could potentially meet Raja Casablanca or rivals Zamalek SC in the final.
