Esperance to face Zamalek in African Champions League as they chase trio of titles

Esperance de Tunis players hold hold up the trophy after winning the CAF Champion League final in controversial fashion.
Defending CAF Champions League winners Esperance face Zamalek in this year's quarterfinals.

Defending champions Esperance of Tunisia were drawn against Cairo giants Zamalek in the African Champions League quarterfinals, ensuring the sides will play each other three times over the next month.

They meet on Feb. 14 in Qatar in the African Super Cup after Esperance won last season's Champions League while the Egyptians were victors in the African Confederation Cup, the secondary continental club competition.

Africa's finest await CAF Champions League quarterfinals draw

For the first time since the expansion of the CAF Champions League to include a quarterfinals stage, all of the eight teams to reach the knockout stages are former winners.

Following the controversy that overshadowed last year's edition, with Esperance awarded the title despite the second leg of their final against Wydad Casablanca in Rades, Tunisia, being abandoned after the Moroccans protested the officials' non-usage of VAR, this year's tournament has largely returned focus to the action on the...

How Mamelodi Sundowns became the CAF Champions League's trickiest customer

Despite a mixed start to the 2019-20 domestic season, Tshwane giants Mamelodi Sundowns remain one of the teams to beat in the CAF Champions League, especially for unlikely rivals Wydad Casablanca.

Morocco's Wydad, who beat Sundowns in last season's semi-finals,...

The draw for the group stage of the 2019-20 CAF Champions League has produced a renewal of one of African football's most heated rivalries of recent years, with South Africa's Mamelodi Sundowns and Moroccan club Wydad Athletic Club of Casablanca pooled together yet again.

It's the fourth successive edition of the tournament in which Downs and Wydad will cross swords.

Their rivalry dates back to the 2017 tournament, when the Moroccans ended Sundowns' reign as African kings with a penalty shootout...

CAF Champions League: Asante Kotoko fighting to make Ghanaian club football relevant again

Asante Kotoko defeated Tunisian giants Etoile du Sahel 2-0 in the first leg of the teams' first round tie played in Kumasi earlier this month. Goals from Augustine Okrah and Richard Arthur have put the club in a position where they need only avoid a heavy defeat in the return game in Monastir on Sunday to become the first Ghanaian team to reach the group stage since Berekum Chelsea back in 2012.

Asante, known as the Porcupine Warriors, are two-time African champions -- 1970 and 1983 -- but they...
