The second match in the final of the African Champions League on Friday evening, an hour and a half long shut down, and eventually stopped because of controversy around the videoscheidsrechter (VAR).

After more than an hour to play seemed to be the Moroccan team Wydad AC to the equalizer, after Mohamed Youcef Belaïli the Tunisian defending champions Espérance Sportive de Tunis in the first half the lead had been.

The referee adopted the 1-1, however, due to alleged offside, and refused to make the video repeat. From the replays on television revealed that the attacker of Wydad is not offside.
