The action opens in the CAF Champions League Friday 25 February, with South Africa’s AmaZulu hosting Algerian visitors ES Setif in Durban.

“We played well to beat Horoya and we were unlucky in our first loss to Raja [Casablanca],” said Usuthu coach Benni McCarthy. “It’s always tough to play away in Africa, but we are learning and growing as a team with every game.”

Saturday 26 February features a trio of CAFCL matches, including the all-Angolan clash between Sagrada Esperanca and Petro de Luanda in the early evening, followed by simultaneous night matches in North Africa, as Morocco’s Wydad Casablanca face Cairo giants Zamalek, and coach Pitso Mosimane has a reunion with South Africa’s Mamelodi Sundowns when they visit Egyptian heavyweights Al Ahly.

“It’s still too early to insist that any result now will be decisive,” said Zamalek coach Patrice Carteron. “But certainly we know the strength and quality of Wydad, a team with a great record in this competition. It will be a great battle between two determined teams.”

Sunday 27 February brings a trio of games from the CAF Confederation Cup, starting off in the early evening with Eswatini’s Royal Leopards hosting South Africa’s Orlando Pirates, and followed by more action in North Africa: Morocco’s RS Berkane take on Tanzania’s Simba SC and Zambian club Zanaco face Libya’s Al Ahly Tripoli.

“Tactical discipline will be important in deciding whether we are successful in this Confederation Cup,” said Simba coach Pablo Franco. “We are playing high-quality opposition and we must be at our maximum to execute our plans.”
