Morocco: The famous derby of Casablanca!
Finally the big derby between Wydad and Raja took place again. Both clubs is from the city Casablanca, but unfortunately this match was moved to Stade de Marrakech.
We believe the match was moved to Marrakech, 250 away from Casablanca, due to safety reasons. In the last years there have been a few incidents at Stade Mohamed V, which is normally the home stadium for both Wydad and Raja. Back in 1997 more than 100 000 fans attended the derby at Stade Mohamed V!
In recent time Wydad played their matches in the Capital Rabat or in a much smaller stadium located in Casablanca.
There was rumors of boycott by the fans of Raja for this match.
7 days ago Wydad Casablanca played against Horoya in CAF Confederation Cup. Absolutely stunning show!
