Simba want to better their CAF Champions League quarterfinal appearances in the 2018/19 and 2020/21 seasons

Simba Sports Club take their CAF Champions League semifinal dream to Morocco as they face Wydad Casablanca on Friday.

The Reds from Msimbazi carry a valuable but slim 1-0 win from their first leg played in Dar Es Salaam last week.

This time the team is looking at bettering their quarterfinal appearance in the 2018/19 and 2020/21 seasons where they lost to TP Mazembe from DR Congo and Kaizer Chiefs from South Africa.

However, when they enter the stage set at the King Mohammed V stadium in Casablanca, the Tanzanians will be cautious putting in mind that Kaizer Chiefs heartbreak came despite them winning 3-0 in Dar Es Salaam.

Wydad are the defending champions after beating record winners Al Ahly 2-0 last year at the same stadium.

“It is a tricky game because we’re playing away but we have two approaches to the game which we shall decide,” Roberto Oliviera, the coach of Simba said.
