Mamelodi Sundowns will be facing a North African team in the CAF Champions League final if they get there, with the game being played at home.
Masandawana will face Wydad Casablanca in September for a spot in the semi-finals after finishing second in Group C, with Pitso Mosimane’s side playing the first leg in Pretoria on the weekend of September 8th.
If the South Africans make it past Wydad then it will be either Ferroviário Beira of Mozambique or USM Alger that they will face in the last four, with Mosimane’s men playing at home first during the last weekend of September.
On the other side of the draw sit Al-Ahli Tripoli of Libya, Tunisia’s Étoile du Sahel, Egyptian giants, Al Ahly, and Espérance de Tunis, all of whom will be hoping to try and secure a spot in November’s showpiece event.
However, before worrying about the semi-finals, Downs first have to try and manoeuvre their way past 1992 African champions, Wydad, a Moroccan team that finished top of a group that included Ahly, Zanaco and Coton Sport.
Ahly were the last team to win the tournament consecutively when they did so in 2012 and 2013.
