Ratings:
 
Denis Onyango – 7/10
 
Played with quite a bit of pressure from Wydad and did well to contain it at times, but there was nothing he could do on the goal.
 
Anele Ngcongca – 6/10
 
Experience showed on a few occasions, but offered very little in attack and didn’t combine well with the midfield throughout.
 
Motjeka Madisha -6.5/10
 
Madisha put in a real shift in the middle of the defence, popping up with vital blocks at times.
 
Ricardo Nascimento – 6/10
 
The Brazilian marshalled his lines well, and whether aerially or physically, sustained the challengers of the hosts well.
 
Tebogo Langerman – 5/10
 
Was absent from offensive and defensive point of view. Lacked the effervescence in these aspects throughout the game.
 
Gaston Sirino - 5/10
 
His early substitution explains his lack of impact on the game. Unlike the previous clash, he wasn’t able to pull the strings for his offensive teammates.
 
Hlompho Kekana – 5/10
 
‘Keke’ to a large extent had an off day and was never really implosive in the middle of the park. The dominance with which he usually takes on the middle wasn’t there on the evening.
 
Andile Jali – 6/10
 
Comfortable on the ball and his passes were always accurate as it found its intended target all the time. But offered little going forward.
 
Themba Zwane – 6/10
 
‘Mshishi’ was bulldozed by the tough and physically build North African defenders, as he struggled to get around them all night long.
 
Sibusiso Vilakazi – 6/10
 
Isolated for much of the game, but looked dangerous whenever he got on the ball and his combinations with Meza late on almost broke Wydad’s hearts.
 
Anthony Laffor – 6.5/10
 
Perhaps, the club’s best player on the day. Laffor was a constant menace with his pace and experience down the wing, played his heart out until his removal.
 
Substitutes:
 
Jose Meza – 6/10
 
Replaced Sirino, and after battling to properly integrate in the game, came good late on with a few half-hearted attempts.
 
Lebohang Maboe – 5/10
 
Despite the promising spell to his career in the club’s colours following his off-season move, Maboe couldn’t quite stamp his authority against the reigning African champions.
 
Tiyani Mabunda -6/10
 
‘Shuga’ brought more balance between defence and attack after his introduction, stopping Wydad from pressing them high through the middle.
