The second leg of the Champions League final was controversially abandoned by Wydad Casablanca in May after the club’s players took issue with the faulty VAR system.

As a result, Esperance were initially declared champions on the evening but CAF later made an about-turn and ruled that the second-leg should be replayed at a neutral venue.

The matter was then referred by both clubs to the CAS who overruled CAF's decision to replay the final on Tuesday, per confirmation from Esperance, that the Tunisian club are the rightful champions of Africa.
