Gavin Hunt has good experience of playing in Africa while he was coaching Wits.This will be a great opportunity for chiefs, as Hunt and his team have already made history by getting "Amakhosi" to this stage of a tournament.



Due to Morocco's participation in CHAN tournament. Where they won the Cup by edging Mali in the final last Sunday in Cameroon. Wydad Casablanca have not played a competitive match for a month now. This will give Gavin Hunt something to smile about. He will be looking forward to come up with a good plan to take advantage of the situation and create another historic moment for Chiefs.


Moroccan giant chose to stop domestic games as they take Chan games very seriously, unlike in PSL were only a fringe of players will normally participate to gain exposure. Only three players(Ayoub El Kaabi, Yahya Jabrane and Walid El Karti ) from Wydad represented their club in the National team.


Chiefs could be carrying some fatigue from hectic schedule in the PSL, however they they will be more fitter and sharper compared to their opponents.


However one could question Chiefs lack of experience in Caf specifically on this stage of the competition. Gavin Hunt have made it a point that Ramahlwe Mphahlele travels with the team to meet Wydad, as he has bags of experience when it comes to CAF. Mphahlele was Sundowns's captain before they won CAF champions league in 2016, however he left to join Chiefs he was not part of the team wich won the cup in the final.


The likes of Castro could also give much needed leadership when chiefs lock horns with Wydad. The game is set to take place at 22h00 (South African time), 13 February on Saturday.

Castro's big structure and height could come in very handy. He also scored a fantastic goal in chiefs recent game, while Nurkovic will be tasked into bull dozing Wydad players, due to their lack of fitness.
