Action continues in the African Football League this week with 2022 CAF Champions League Winners Wydad facing current Nigerian Champions Enyimba. Having won the reverse fixture 1-0, Wydad will look to do a double over the People’s Elephant and earn a place in the last four of the tournament. As an experienced side in continental club football, Wydad will certainly have their eyes set on being the winner of the maiden edition of this money spinning competition. With a 39th minute kick from the spot, Wydad grabbed all 3 points in the first leg of this tie, pushing them a step closer to the Semis. Here, they will look to finish the job as they pursue another silverware at the continental stage.
For Enyimba, the hurdle cannot get any tougher considering the how difficult it is to travel and get a result from a North African side. In addition to this, Enyimba have not been at their best this season both domestically and on the continent. In the NPFL, they have only managed a win from 2 games, putting them 18th on the log, in the relegation waters. In the preliminary round of the CAF Champions League, Enyimba crashed out after a 4-3 aggregate loss to Al Ahly. As a result, their dreams of replicating the glory days of the early 2000s remain elusive. In this tie, the Nigerian side will be looking to overcome the first leg deficit and do what will be a major upset against the Moroccan champions.
Certainly, continental club competitions are always very competitive given the incentives involved for participating teams. In this case, a place in the semi final is up for grabs meaning this is going to be a cagey and closely fought encounter. Therefore, for our Wydad Vs Enyimba predictions, we are expecting the opening half to end in a stalemate.

Main tip: Half Time Draw
Our Wydad vs Enyimba predictions
According to the statistics and the odds of the bookmakers, we suggest the following tips:
Prediction 1: Half Time Draw
Wydad are highly experienced when it comes to club football on the African scene. So far, they have won 3 CAF Champions League titles, 1 Super Cup and 1 African Cup Winners Cup. On their part, Enyimba are also not push overs when it comes to major tournaments like these. In fact, the Peoples Elephant won the CAF Champions League back to back in 2003 and 2004. They also won the CAF Super Cup in 2004 and 2005. Considering the resume of both teams at this level, we expect a keenly contested tie from start to finish. While Wydad will count on home advantage, Enyimba will certainly be a tough nut to crack. To this end, we are expecting a close game with the opening half ending in a stalemate.

Prediction 2: DC 1X & Under 2.5 Goals
In their last meeting, Wydad won 1-0 away at Enyimba. Before that, the Moroccan side had also pipped Enyimba 1-0 back in 2011. This indicates how close past meetings have been and how well Wydad grind out results. Another issue that Enyimba are up against here is the almost insurmountable nature of North African sides especially on home turf. In fact, the last 4 visits by any Nigerian side to the North has failed to yield anything positive, hence the reason many of them have failed to make beyond the preliminary stages in recent times. Based on this, for our second Wydad vs Enyimba predictions, we are backing the home side to win or draw with less than 3 goals scored.

Prediction 3: Over 2.5 Bookings
Given the history and nature of rivalry between Nigerian and North African sides, we expect this fixture to be an explosive one. In fact, the semi final ticket to the maiden African football is at stake making this game an all important affair for both sides. With all of these, we expect loads of passion and excitement from the players of both teams. This came to the fore in the first leg of this tie as 4 yellow cards and 1 red card was given. Therefore, we are expecting this second leg tie to be as passionate as the first with at least 3 cards given.
