South African giants Sundowns and Chiefs, will battle Egypt’s Al Ahly and Simba of Tanzania in the last eight of the CAFCL.
The quarter-final draw was unveiled at a live event in Cairo, Egypt on Friday afternoon.
The Sundowns-Ahly tie sees a dramatic match-up of Ahly’s coach, Pitso Mosimane, coming up against the team he left under bitter circumstances last season, Sundowns.
In the other battle, Chiefs have another opportunity to build a long overdue pedigree in Africa as the most supported and one of the richest clubs on the continent.
The team known as Amakhosi, has never gone past the group stages of the tournament, with a chance to make the semi-finals now 120 minutes away.
The other two quarter-final battles will be Tunisia’s Esperance against MC Alger of Algeria, while Moroccan giants Wydad will lock horns with CR Belouizdad of Algeria.
