Al Ahly, Mamelodi Sundowns, Esperance, and TP Mazembe advance to TotalEnergies CAF Champions League Semis



Africa’s elite clubs, Al Ahly of Egypt, Esperance Sportive de Tunis, South Africa’s Mamelodi Sundowns, and TP Mazembe of DR Congo, have all qualified for this year’s TotalEnergies CAF Champions League following exciting Quarter-final fixtures this weekend.


Title holders and record champions Al Ahly are still on track to defend their title. They beat Simba SC in Cairo to secure their place, while four-time winners Esperance Sportive de Tunis were made to labor hard against Asec Mimosas of Cote d’Ivoire. The reigning African Football League (“AFL”) Champions and 2015/16 winners, Mamelodi Sundowns, were pushed to the end by Tanzania’s Young Africans in South Africa.


Five-time winner TP Mazembe of DR Congo pulled one of the best performances this weekend, winning 2-1 away from Atletico Petroleos of Luanda after the first leg ended goalless.


The semis will be played on a home-and-away basis from 19 to 20 April 2024 (first leg), with the Second Leg scheduled for 26 to 27 April 2024.


In the first semi-final, Al Ahly (Egypt) will play TP Mazembe (DR Congo) in what promises to be a thrilling encounter. In the second semi-final, Esperance Sportive de Tunis will play Mamelodi Sundowns.


CAF will announce the dates and kick-off dates in due course.
