Advantage Wydad Casablanca after holding Mouloudia in Algeria

Midfielder Yahya Jabrane converted a 66th-minute penalty for the Moroccan club behind closed doors at the 80,000-capacity July 5 Stadium because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Mouloudia levelled on 83 minutes from an unlikely source as defender Miloud Rebiai came forward for a free-kick and his glancing header found the net.

The visitors continued to control possession and territory after half-time and deservedly went ahead after substitute Mohamed Ounajem was so blatantly fouled in the box that there were no protests.

Rebiai scored his second goal of the Champions League campaign with his back to the goal, nodding the ball to the right of goalkeeper Ahmed Tagnaouti.

The other first legs will be played on Saturday with the clash of defending champions Al Ahly of Egypt and Mamelodi Sundowns of South Africa in Cairo likely to attract most attention.
