CAF Confederations Cup 2015 Group Stage Set


Zamalek knocked out Sanga Balende to complete the cast of eight set to compete in the group stage of 2015.

The path to CAF Confederations 2015 glory is now clearer after the 2nd legs of an enthralling play-off round were completed. Africa’s two most successful clubs, Al Ahly and Zamalek, lead the charge in group A and B respectively.

Group A will see Al Ahly encounter more Tunisian opposition with their elimination of Club Africain in mind. These will be Esperance Tunis, who knocked out Hearts of Oak and Etoile Sahel who edged Raja Casablanca. Stade Malien completes the group which kicks off on the weekend of 26-28th June; the Malians travel to Sousse to play Etoile while Ahly host Esperance Tunis.

Group B features a very familiar cast, with trio Zamalek, Orlando Pirates and AC Leopards having met in the CAF Champions League group stage in 2013. They will be joined by another Tunisian side, CS Sfaxien; the most successful side in this competition with three titles. Zamalek host CS Sfaxien on matchday 1 whereas AC Leopard takes on Orlando Pirates at home.

I have dedicated part of my time in this bad world to following African football. From CECAFA to WAFU, COSAFA to UNAF & even the forgotten UNIFFAC.
