CAF announce dates for Al Ahly Champions League games against Sundowns
The Red Devils were drawn against Mamelodi Sundowns in the quarter-finals of the CAF Champions League after topping their group, which included Simba SC, JS Saoura, and AS Vita Club.
On the other hand, Sundowns qualified for the knock out rounds as group A runners-up after finishing behind Wydad Casablanca on goal difference.
CAF have announced that the first-leg of the clash will take place in South Africa on April 5, before both teams face each other again in Cairo a week later, precisely on April 12.
The last time both teams played each other was in April 2007 in the round of 16 of the CAF Champions League, with Al Ahly earning a valuable 2-2 away draw, before securing a 2-0 home win, thanks to strikes from Shady Mohamed and Aboutrika.
It wasn’t the only encounter between them though, as Al Ahly also faced the Brazilians in the 2001 CAF Champions League final, which saw the Reds win 4-1 on aggregate to lift their third title.
