Wydad Casablanca Are Crowned CAF Super Cup Champions As VAR Debuts

Wydad Casablanca have been crowned the 2017 CAF Super Cup champions following the Moroccans’ 1-0 win over TP Mazembe of DR Congo in their final clash played at the Stade Mohammed V. in Casablanca on Saturday evening.

Amin Tighazoui was the matchwinner for the CAF Champions League champions as he scored a stunning freekick on 82 minutes to hand his team the title via a game that featured the much talked about Video Assistant Referee (VAR) technology.

VAR was used in the 57th minute to overrule a penalty that was wrongly awarded to Wydad Casablanca.

The CAF Super Cup final is contested between the winner of the CAF Champions League and the CAF Confederation Cup.
