Nigerian forward, Michael Babatunde, has expressed confidence that his Moroccan side Wydad Casablanca can upset Tunisian giants Esperance in the second leg of the CAF Champions League final on Friday.
In the first leg played in Rabat a week ago, visiting Esperance, who paraded former Kano Pillars forward Junior Lokosa, forced 10-man Wydad to a 1-1 draw.
Babatunde was in action for Wydad before he was replaced in the 62nd minute.
Speaking ahead of Friday’s reverse fixture at the Stade Olympique de Rades in Tunis, Babatunde stated that Wydad has what it takes to upset Esperance right on their turf.
“Nothing is impossible in football and if there’s any team that can stop Esperance, it’s Wydad. We’ll play with our heart,” the 2014 FIFA World Cup star with the Super Eagles, was quoted to have said on CAF’s verified Twitter handle.
The 26-year-old who joined the Moroccan club in 2018 from Qatar club, Qatar SC, described his performance this season with the North Africans as the best in his professional career.
“I’ve played in Europe and Asia but this period with Wydad represents one of the best moments of my career, Nigerian-import Michael Babatunde.”
