The atmosphere in Berkane is tense with many problems between the players and Congolese coach Florent Ibenge. After the recent poor run of results with only one win in the previous 5 matches in all competitions, some players refuse to train, while the fans make a request to the board to resign the coach. Despite that, today they have serious problems with absence and due to injuries or suspensions out of the squad are Mokadem (10/0), Mohammed Farehane (10/0), Moudane (9/0), Dayo (8/2), Oubila (8/0), Abdelkarim Baadi (6/0), and Aziz (2/0). Youssoufia Berrechid is a solid team with a good form of only one defeat in the last 5 rounds. They won the last two matches against Jeunesse Sportive Soualem and Difaa El Jadidi, and have a nice offensive power scoring at least a goal in 5 from the last 6 matches. In their mutual matches in Botola Pro, the guests are without a defeat in the previous 4 matches and should give a strong resistance.
