Throne Cup: MAT beats WAC and joins AS FAR in the final

Marrakech – Moghreb de Tétouan (MAT) qualified for the final of the Football Throne Cup, beating Wydad de Casablanca (WAC) by 5 shots on goal to 3 (regulation time and extra time 2-2), Sunday evening in the semi-final played at the Grand Stade de Marrakech.

Ayoub El Kaabi, Botola Pro D1 top scorer this season (18 goals), took advantage of a poorly cleared ball by the Tetouan defense to open the scoring in the 42nd minute.

At the start of the second act, the MAT managed to pick up the score thanks to Hicham El Khaloua (46th), before Anas Jabroun gave the advantage to the white Colombe club (70th).

Four minutes later, freshly returned Saimon Msuva scored the equalizer goal with a diving header.

El Kaabi thought he had delivered his own by scoring in the 118th minute, but his goal was denied after resorting to VAR.

The WAC, nine times winner of this trophy, validated its ticket for the ace square by dominating Chabab Mohammedia (4-0), while the MAT had disposed of the Maghreb of Fez (7-6, tab, regulation time 0-0).

In the final, Moghreb Tétouan will cross swords with AS FAR, winner earlier in Agadir from Raja Béni Mellal (1-0).
