Wydad Casablanca face Petro de Luanda in the CAF Champions League on Friday

The second-leg fixtures of the CAF Champions League semi-finals take place this weekend, with Wydad Casablanca hosting Petro de Luanda at the Stade Mohammed V on Friday.

The hosts head into the second leg with a two-goal advantage. They secured a 3-1 win in the first leg and should be confident of booking their place in the final for the first time since the 2018-19 campaign.

The visiting side are yet to make it to the competition's final and will have to score three away goals to do so for the first time in their history. They have scored three goals in just one game in the ongoing Champions League campaign, so their odds of overturning a two-goal deficit are slim.

Wydad Casablanca vs Petro de Luanda Head-to-Head

The two sides have squared off seven times across all competitions. The hosts have been the better side in this fixture with five wins, while the Angolan side have just one win to their name and one game has ended in a draw.

This will be the fourth meeting between the two teams this season, with two games going the hosts' way and Petro de Luanda picking up a win in their home game in the group stage.

Wydad Casablanca vs Petro de Luanda Prediction

Wydad Al Oumma have a solid record in the competition and have made it to the semi-finals in the last three editions. They made it to the final in 2018-19 and will be looking to reach the title decider again this season, having been eliminated from the semi-finals in the last two seasons.

Petro de Luanda face the tough task of overcoming a two-goal deficit here. They are likely to put up a fight against the Moroccan giants, but we expect them to fall short of securing an upset here.

Prediction: Wydad Casablanca 2-1 Petro de Luanda
