The defeat was the first of this campaign suffered by Wydad who are the reigning champions of the competition.

“It was a tough game, but we have the quality to beat them well in the second leg to advance to the semi final,” Babatunde who played for 60 minutes in the encounter told CSN.

“It was our first defeat and we must pick ourselves up to fight back.

“We need to take our chances in the second leg and stop them from creating any,. It’s going to be hard but we are confident.”

Babatunde has made five appearances for Wydad Casablanca since he arrived in the summer from SC Qatar.
