Wydad AC vs Enyimba predictions and free betting tips

Enyimba's biggest objective in this second leg of the AFL second leg of the quarterfinals is to try and progress. But will they defeat Wydad AC after suffering a defeat at home, a game in which Enyimba's defender Alalibo Somiari was sent off with a red card in added time? Here are the free Wydad AC vs Enyimba predictions by Football Ground Guide:

Total match goals prediction: Under 2.5 goals

We expect an even more difficult meeting in the second leg after a first-leg that may have ended in a stalemate if not a penalty that earned Wydad an important way win. With that, our first prediction for Wydad AC vs Enyimba is under 2.5 goals.

Team to score prediction: Both teams to score – No

In another prediction for the AFL clash, we have settled on the game to end with goals on only one end of the pitch. Wydad were the only scorers in the first leg and with home support in the second leg, they are poised to be the only team to score yet again.

Correct score prediction: 2-0 to Wydad Casablanca

The People's Elephant could not do much with the home support in the first leg and a trip to Morocco to play Wydad is one not to fancy. Wydad will be determined to protect their narrow lead from the first leg and so is the good reputation they enjoy on the African club football stage. With that, our final Wydad vs Enyimba prediction is a 2-0 to the Moroccan hosts.

Wydad AC vs Enyimba African Football League Quarterfinals fixture preview

Enyimba were unfortunate in the first leg of the African Football League quarterfinals when they hosted Wydad AC in Nigeria.  The visiting Moroccan outfit cruised to a narrow victory of 0-1, courtesy of a spot-kick in the 38th minute.

For the remainder of the game, Wydad could not add another goal as Enyimba relentlessly held onto their precious lead.

However, a yellow card to Enyimba's Olorunleke Ojo made the hosts play more carefully as it cost them a goal a minute later. And in the 90+3 minute, Enyimba's defence Alalibo Somiari was handed a straight red, so the head coach of the visitors must now find a befitting replacement.

Wydad on the other hand had three players pick yellow cards, which means even with home support in this second leg, the Moroccan hosts must not throw caution to the wind as it could beg a costly punishment from the relentless Enyimba outfit.

The question is, will Enyimba continue to surprise us? It all boils down to how the Nigerian visitors plan for this important game, against a more experienced and successful club like Wydad Casablanca.
