Wydad AC vs Al-Hilal Kick Off Time
NAME: Wydad AC – Al-Hilal Saudi
DATE: 4 Feb 2023
TIME: 14:30 UTC
VENUE: Complexe Sportif Moulay Abdellah, Rabat, Morocco
Making their first appearance at the Club World Cup since 2017, Wydad AC host Saudi Arabian champions Al-Hilal on Saturday at Prince Moulay Abdellah Stadium in Rabat with a spot in the semi-finals on the line.
Last May, the Moroccans captured the CAF Champions League in Africa for the third time, defeating Al Ahly 2-0, while Al-Za’eem finished fourth in this competition a year ago.
To get to this tournament, they took out the most successful African club in the CAF Champions League, scoring the most goals in the group stage (15) while going unbeaten on home soil.
It is the third time that Morocco have hosted this event and the first since 2014, as Wydad have yet to win a match at this competition, losing to Mexican side Pachuca in extra time (1-0) over five years ago and dropping their fifth-place match 3-2 versus Urawa Red Diamonds.
With Mehdi Nafti now at the controls, Wydad have been rock solid along the backline, posting six successive clean sheets and sitting second in the Botola, two points behind FAR Rabat.
Saturday will be the first time they face a side from Saudi Arabia, while they come into this encounter having suffered just one defeat in their last 11 fixtures against teams outside of Morocco.
Wydad have not allowed a goal in the first half all year, failing to concede an opening strike since falling 2-0 in the CAF Super Cup Final last September versus RSB Berkane.
