In the panzurlism and madness that prevails in Morocco with the organization of the World Cup of Clubs and the qualification of Raja in the semifinals, there is also a competition for the championship.
In one of these games, the DHJ Cup meets the WAF, aiming to get closer to the top of the championship, which is the goal after winning the Cup in November.
The fight is extremely interesting, because the WAF has managed to do some good results in its attempt to avoid this year's demotion. The black and white Fes knew from the beginning that this year would be very difficult. The financial problems and the material were weakened enough, as the leader of the Omar Hasi team, who was essentially alone holding the team in the category for years. From the beginning, the team was stuck in the low places, but in the last 4 games it managed a 2-1-1 and so it reached 9 points and approached the positions that are above the demo line.
Of course, WAF's two victories were favored by coincidence and arbitration. He had an unexpected win at the FAR headquarters, when the hosts, while taking the initiative, played with 10 players from 60 and had lost 4-5 big chances, accepted a funny goal that actually set the end result. In the previous match, the arbitration favored the WAF. Unfair misconduct for the last AS Sale and hostile arbitration that also fatally brought 1-0 to the WAF at 72 and AS Sale lost 2 big opportunities for equalizing in the final minutes.
As far as DHJ is concerned, the situation is odd. With the conquest of the cup the team took the first title of the story and everyone was in a state of happiness and the team was doing well in the championship. But last week, DHJ's general manager announced his resignation, which brought disquiet within the team. Despite the fuss, DHJ had a good performance against FAR in the previous game and was wrongly defeated with 1-0 with a penalty at least challenging the delays of the first half.
But in the week came other issues, since the players have not paid the prize for the cup and the latest wages. The administration threw the blame for the inconvenience that brought the team's team to the resignation of the general leader, meetings were held to be persuaded to return, he refused, and finally on Thursday the team announced a large sum to receive from sponsors this year and promised to cover direct debts to the players.
So the calm seems to have returned to El Jadida's team, who wants to return to victories and narrow the gap from the top. Right now, after a series of struggles with difficult opponents, they have a good chance to reach a victory against a relatively weak opponent and overcome the defeat of the previous game. The latest WAF results were very lucky and I think that at a venue where they have never won Botola's history (3-1-0 the Difaa record) they will face great difficulties.
