Petro on the way to Morocco promises not to give up on the African champions final

The Petro de Luanda team has already left the Angolan capital for Morocco, where this Friday they have a match against Wydad de Casablanca. The game, scheduled for 20:00, will take place at the Mohammed V Stadium, and only victory will guarantee Petro a place in the final of the African Champion Clubs' Football League.


On the way to the 'second leg' of the semi-finals of the competition, Petro will also make a stopover in Portugal, where he will perform a light physical regeneration session in Lisbon, taking into account the seven-hour journey to the Portuguese capital. Afterwards, the team heads to Casablanca, on a flight scheduled for 2:30 pm this Thursday.

The delegation of the 'oil producers' is led by Inácio Cândido, an official of the Angolan Football Federation and an Angolan referee of international standing. Coach Alexandre Santos is accompanied by his technical team. 20 players are still traveling: Wellington and Augusto Molecano, Pedro, Vidinho, Littlefinger, Diógenes, Eddie Afonso, Kinito, Tó Carneiro, Megue, Maya, Job, Anderson, Erico, Dany, Tiago Azulão, Jaredi, Gleison, Ito and Yano.

In the team's last training session, held on Tuesday, the team corrected some strategic details and rehearsed the game model to be used, says Angop.

Petro promises not to give up an unprecedented qualification to the Champions League final, and will have to overcome the 1-3 disadvantage, result of the last game in Luanda. Although the Moroccans are favourites, the Angolans believe they can turn the tie in their favor.

The Petro has a return trip scheduled for the early hours of the morning on Monday, the 16th. The route is similar to the departure one, keeping the stop in Lisbon.

The final of the competition is scheduled for the 29th of May, Sunday.
