Mosimane have overseen three matches since ascending the reigns at the Egyptian giants, with two wins and a draw in the Egyptian Premier League and knows the Moroccans very well.

Ahly booted Mamelodi Sundowns, then coached by Mosimane in the quarter-finals this year while Wydad ousted Tunisians Etoile du Sahel and just lost out on the Botola title.

Good news for Mosimane is that captain and goalkeeper Mohamed El-Shenawy, Mahmoud Kahraba and Aliou Badji are back from injury.

The last time Ahly and Wydad did battle, the Moroccans were 2-1 winners on aggregate in the 2017 semi-finals en-route to lifting their second continental crown.

This evening's clash will also see two former Mamelodi Sundowns coaches going head-to-head, as Miguel Ángel Gamondi coached the Brazilians alongside Neil Tovey.

Starting line-ups:

Wydad: A. Tagnaouti, Abdellatif Noussir, Yahya Jabrane, Ibrahim Eddine, Yahia Attiyat-allah, Brahim Nakach (C), El Karti, Aymen El Hassouni, Badie Aouk, Gbagbo Junior Magbi, El Haddad.

Al Ahly: El-Shennawy; Hany, Yasser Ibrahim, Ayman Ashraf, Ali Ma’aloul; Amr El-Sulya, Aliou Dieng; Mohamed Magdy Afsha, Hussein El-Shahat, Junior Ajayi; Marwan Mohsen.
