Wydad vs Simba Predictions by Football Ground Guide

It is the second time Simba and Wydad clash following a 1-0 victory for Simba SC in the first leg of the quarterfinals. The following are the best predictions for the first leg of the 2023 CAF Champions League Quarterfinals:

First Team to Score: Wydad Casablanca to Score First

In our first Wydad vs Simba prediction, we are backing the North African hosts to open the lead. This is a crucial game for the reigning champions Wydad Casablanca. It would make more sense if they go all the way to the finals as the title holders, so a desire to kill the game early in front of thousands of massive home supporters should be one way to get the much-need motivation. We are tipping Wydad to do what they have done all season in the CAF Champions League – scoring first.

Total Match Goals Prediction: Under 2.5 Goals

In our second Wydad vs Simba prediction, we have settled on under 2.5 goals from the total goals market. We had only one goal in the first leg of the CAF Champions League quarterfinals despite the game yielding a total of 6 shots on goal, three from each side. The Tanzanian side knows a difficult game awaits in Morocco, so their only way out is to defend less and defend more. Thus, this should be another low-scoring encounter.

Correct Score Prediction: 2-0 to Wydad Casablanca

Simba SC is the least favourite in this game because playing away in Morocco will not have the massive backing of fans they had in the first leg of the quarterfinals. The hosts have no major injuries, save for Ze' who is out for personal reasons. We are tipping a 2-0 victory for Wydad to make it four clean sheet wins in this year's CAF Champions League home games.

Wydad vs Simba CAF Champions League Preview

Wydad Casablanca

This is a do-or-die fixture for Wydad Casablanca. They could not do much in the first leg away in Tanzania. Wydad had 48% ball possession in the first leg, a game in which they dominated the second leg and had two more shots on target after getting just one shot on goal in the first leg which Simba SC dominated by 56%.

Wydad Casablanca has had a good showing in the competition so far, especially when playing at home, noting that the Moroccan hosts have won three home games they have played in the 2023 CAF Champions League. All the home games had clean sheets.

Simba SC

Simba SC will have the difficult challenge of defending a 1-0 home lead from the first leg of the CAF Champions league quarterfinals in this trip to Morocco.

The Tanzanian visitors have disapproved doubters wrong to reach this far in the competition and will now take another chance of making it to the semifinals. They should aim to win or at least hold WAC to a barren draw. Both teams had 3 shots in the first leg, but WAC which was more offensive in that encounter had 8 goals against 2 for Simba SC.
