This reverses an earlier decision by the Confederation of African Football’s (Caf) executive committee to order a replay of the second leg.

Wydad left the pitch after an equaliser they scored was disallowed by VAR.

Esperance were leading 1-0 in the second leg at the time and 2-1 overall.

The 1-1 draw from the first leg in Morocco stands.

Both clubs had appealed to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (Cas), which last week found that the Caf executive committee’s decision was wrong and ordered the case to be heard by Caf’s disciplinary committee.

Caf ruled Moroccan side Wydad is considered to have lost the second leg, handing Esperance the trophy.
