Mamelodi Sundowns to play Al Ahly in CAF quarter finals

Sundowns Vs AL Ahlly

Pitso Mosimane will take on his former club in the two legged CAF champions league quarterfinals that will be played in both Egypt and South Africa.

The CAF champions league draw took place in Cairo on Friday with most South African and Egyptian fans anticipating Pitso to return home to play Sundowns. Mosimane left Sundowns before the start of the season to join Al Ahly in a move that left Sundowns fans shocked.

This will be the third time the reigning champions play Mamelodi Sundowns in the CAF champions league where in 2019 Sundowns pulled a shocker when they beat the Egyptians 5-0 at home with Mosimane in charge.

Al Ahly finished second in group A behind Simba while Sundowns finished top in group B.
