Botswana champions Jwaneng Galaxy stunned Wydad Casablanca in the Champions League but their coach had to face accusations of using black magic from a disbelieving Moroccan press

Botswana champions Jwaneng Galaxy FC coach Morena Ramoreboli stormed from a press conference in Morocco after claims of using black magic were leveled against his team following a shocking 1-0 win over Wydad Casablanca in the CAF Champions League on Saturday.

Ramoreboli masterminded a stunning win over Wydad in Marrakech with Thabang Sesinyi scoring the lone goal in the 33rd minute but a stunned Moroccan press could not believe the three-time African champions had lost to the side from Botswana and asked the coach if he had used black magic.

"Guys, you're being unfair," Ramoreboli replied to the journalist who asked the question. "Ah, now you are undermining me, you're saying we won because of black magic! Don't disrespect us," he added, before storming out of the press room.

The accusations came after Jwaneng Galaxy FC players were captured in a clip spilling an unidentified liquid at the corner flag before the match.

Jwaneng Galaxy FC have had an impressive start to their Champions League campaign, starting with a 4-1 aggregate win over Ugandan champions Vipers in the first preliminary round, before they stunned South African giants Orlando Pirates 5-4 on post-match penalties after a 1-1 draw over two legs in the second preliminary round.

That earned them a place in the group stages where they are in Group B with 2022 champions Wydad, Tanzanian giants Simba SC and Ivory Coast heavyweights ASEC Mimosas.

While they were considered the underdogs in the group, they find themselves top after matchday one with three points while Simba and ASEC have one each after their 1-1 draw on Saturday.
