The Red Castle will be without seven key players as they host the Phobians on Sunday

Moroccan giants Wydad Athletic Club have been hit with injury concerns ahead of their Caf Champions League second leg clash with Hearts of Oak on Sunday.

The Red Castle are expected to host the Phobians at the Mohammed V Sports Stadium in Casablanca after losing the first leg 1-0 at the Accra Sports Stadium last weekend.

Wydad AC will miss Reda Al-Jaadi after he failed to recover from his injury relay. Reda Jaadi was injured during the Morocco’s 2-1 win over Sierra Leone in a friendly game. He came on in the game as a substitute and was taken off after some minutes.

According to reports in Morocco, he will be out for at least eight weeks.

Also, Sufian Karkash and Zuhair Al-Mutarji will be absent from the matchday squad.

Moreover, players like Salah El-Din Bin Yesho will be missing in today’s game due to injury relay while Guy Mbenza who has been scoring goals for fun in the league will not be available after he was not registered for the Caf Champions League.

Again, Jalal Daoudi Joel Tsumu are out of the game.
