CAF Champions League Tips
The CAF Champions League is an annual club competition run by the Confederation of African Football. It is Africa’s version of the UEFA Champions League with the top clubs in Africa competing to be crowned best club on the continent.
52 teams from 44 associations with the top 16 teams contesting the group stage before the top two teams from each group advance to the quarter-finals. Unlike the UEFA Champions League, the winner is decided after a two-legged home and away final.
The winners qualify for the FIFA Club World Cup and a spot in the CAF Super Cup against the winners of the CAF Confederation Cup. The tournament began in 1964 as the African Champions Cup with clubs from Cameroon dominating in the 1970s alongside Guinea’s Hafia Conakry. Teams from North Africa took over in the 1980s, winning the title 22 times in the last 28 seasons.
Egypt's Al Ahly are the most successful club in CAF Champions League history, the Red Devils winning the tournament a record eight times. Fellow Cairo side Zamalek have won on five occasions, contributing to Egyptian clubs being the most successful with 14 titles.
Congo club TP Mazembe have a proud record in the tournament with five titles in 1967, 1968, 2009, 2010 and 2015. Clubs from Morocco have been successful in the CAF Champions League, Raja Casablanca winning three times with Wydad Casablanca winning in 1992 and reigning champions after defeating Al Ahly in the 2017 final.
