The Confederation of African football have decided to replay the Champions League final following the scandalous scenes in Radès last week.
This became clear at CAF’s emergency meeting in Paris, where the executive committee discussed the mayhem that took place during the second leg of the Champions League final between Wydad Athletic Club and Espérance de Tunis. The visitors had a goal wrongly disallowed after 60 minutes of play and when the VAR system proved not to be working, they refused to continue, resulting in Espérance being handed the title.
But after lengthy discussions it’s been decided that the final will be replayed on neutral ground, outside of Tunisia with result from the first leg still counting. The time and location have yet to be confirmed, although it looks like we’d have to wait until after the summer, with Africa Cup of Nations soon approaching.
