Will Badr Bannon break the Moroccan knot with the poles and win the Champions League?

Moroccan Badr Bannon, Al-Ahly club defender, is preparing to break the knot of Moroccan players with the two poles, Al-Ahly and Zamalek, by winning the African Champions League when Al-Ahly meets Kaizer Chiefs next Saturday.

Al-Ahly club will face the South African team Kaizer Chiefs at nine in the evening, in the framework of the final match of the African Champions League, to be held at the Mohammed V complex stadium in Casablanca, Morocco.

Badr Banoun hopes to be the first Moroccan player to win the African Champions League title with the poles, after no player before him succeeded in winning the title.

Walid Azzaro, the former Al-Ahly striker, is considered the most player who was close to winning this title, but he lost the final twice in a row with Al-Ahly Club against both Wydad and Esperance of Tunisia.

The Moroccans Ashraf Bencharki and Mohamed Onajem with Zamalek also failed to snatch the title after losing to Al-Ahly by two goals to one last season.

Al-Ahly is seeking to continue winning championships by crowning the tenth title in its history against Kaizer Chiefs and returning again to the Club World Cup for the second consecutive season, after winning the title last season at the expense of Zamalek with two goals against a goal.

It is worth noting that Al-Ahly defeated Kaizer Chiefs 4-1 in the 2002 African Super Cup, and the historic Egyptian champion hopes to repeat his crushing victory over the Amakuchi battalion in the 2021 Champions League final.
