LAUSANNE, Switzerland (AP) — The Court of Arbitration for Sport on Friday heard an appeal to overturn the decision that awarded the 2019 African Champions League title to Tunisian club Espérance.
CAS said it held a hearing by video link for Wydad Casablanca to challenge rulings that declared Espérance the champion after a chaotic second-leg game was abandoned last May 31.
The court typically makes its ruling several weeks after a hearing.
The second-leg game in Tunisia could not be finished when Wydad players refused to continue in a dispute over a disallowed goal.
The Moroccan club thought it scored in the 59th minute to level the game at 1-1 and make the aggregate score 2-2. But the goal was disallowed for offside, and the promised video review system was not available.
