Wydad Casablanca will go into their CAF Champions League second leg semi-final clash against Kaizer Chiefs with a poor record of results in South Africa.

Since 2017, the Moroccan giants have played in South Africa six times and they are yet to taste victory on Mzansi soil. Five of the six matches were against 2016 champions Mamelodi Sundowns, while the other was against Amakhosi in this year's group stages.

Chiefs beat Wydad 1-0 at FNB Stadium in April, thanks to a goal from experienced Amakhosi striker Bernard Parker. It was a victory that helped Chiefs book a spot in the quarterfinals of the competition and they are now on the verge of booking themselves a spot in the final, to play either Esperance or Pitso Mosimane's Al Ahly side.

This was not the first time Wydad suffered defeat on South African soil. They have been beaten three times by Sundowns in South Africa, in the 2017, 2018/19 and 2019/20 editions of the competition.

In 2017, Wydad lost 1-0 to Sundowns in the first leg of their quarterfinal clash. The following year, the two sides met in the group stages and it finished 1-1 in Atteridgeville. During the 2018/19 campaign, Wydad came to South Africa twice, in the group stages and again in the semi-finals. The Moroccans lost 2-1 in the group stages and played to a goalless draw in the second leg semi-final.

In 2019/20, Sundowns beat the Moroccans 1-0 in the group stages.

As Chiefs prepare for the second leg clash this weekend, they will believe they can secure their spot in the final.
