What’s the story?

The Egyptian giants will now begin the defence of their CCL trophy against Niger outfit Union Sportive de la Gendarmerie Nationale in the second round.

In what can be deemed familiar territory for the Red Devils, Ahly will start their Champions League campaign in Niger for the second season in a row after their fixture with AS SONIDEP last season.

 

No Tau Yet

Newly signed Bafana Bafana attacker Percy Tau was among the star names that were absent from the squad for their CAF opener, despite returning to full fitness recently.

Mosimane, who is a three-time winner of the popular showpiece, took to his social media accounts recently where he mentioned that he and his team are focused on winning their third CCL title in a row.

Ready To Conquer

Jingles said, “I am very excited that our journey towards achieving the 3rd CAF Champions League title in a row starts on Saturday in Niger.”

“We are focused on the prize ahead and ready, once again, to conquer the @cafclcc tournament.”
