📺 VAR to be used in CAF Champions League semi finals

CAF has announced that Video Assitance Refereeing (VAR) technology will be used in this year's Champions League semi-finals.

The last time the technology was used in the club competition was the controversy-ridden Champions League finals between Esperance and Wydad Casablanca. 

Wydad walked out of the second leg after protesting a decision made by the centre referee. They insisted that the decision be referred to VAR but it was not operational for that match causing an hour hold up. 

They have since sued CAF and Esperance at Court of Arbitration in Sports in Lausanne, Switzerland.

The Champions League semi-finals will pit Al Ahly taking on Raja Casablanca while Wydad faces Zamalek in an all Egypt v Morocco affair. 

CAF also announced that VAR will be used at this year's sixth edition of African NationsChampionhsups (CHAN) set for Cameroon from April 4 to 25.
