  • Kabylie scored a late winner to win 1-0
  • This was Wydad’s first match in the group stages
  • Kabylie top the group with four points

Skipper Badreddine Souyad led from the front, literally scoring a stunning header with three minutes of regulation time left as Algeria’s JS Kabylie beat defending champions Wydad Athletic Club 1-0 in Algiers to move top of Group A in the CAF Champions League.

The Algerians are on four points after starting off with a draw last weekend while the Moroccan giants were only playing their first group stage match following their involvement in the FIFA Club World Cup that was staged on their home soil.

Souyad dived in to score a thunderous header at the backpost from a Kouceila Boualia corner and send the home fans into frenzy at the July 5 Stadium in Algiers.

Entertaining match with Wydad dominating 

It was an entertaining match with Wydad commanding most of the possession, but finding little to do with it while their hosts were more efficient whenever they had the ball.

The Moroccan’s camped in the Kabylie box for the final five minutes of the game, but they couldn’t grab at least a draw on the road.

Kabylie had the most of the chances through the game, and were rewarded for their industry especially on the offensive end.

In the opening half, they only had 40percent of possession, but with that had two close chances at goal.

Noufel Ould Hamou had a shot on his outer foot fly straight to the keeper’s arms, while Sofiane Guenina also had an effort from distance saved by the Wydad custodian.

More chances in the second half 

In the second half, they had more chances, with Dadi Mouaki and Hamou combining twice. On the first instance, Hamou’s shot from a Mouaki tee was saved by the keeper while in the second, he shot over one on one with the keeper.

Kabylie kept their hunt, keeping the faith, and would be rewarded just three minutes to time, skipper Souyad diving in at the backpost to send a scorching header into the back of the net.

Wydad will not head back to the drawing board to get their acts clean before facing off with Petro de Luanda in Casablanca next weekend.

The Algerian side will be away to AS Vital Club of DR Congo.
