Caf 2016 Champions League winners Mamelodi Sundowns are likely to travel a lot more to North Africa for this year’s CAF Champions League group stage.
The Brazilians have been placed in Pot 2 ahead of the draw at the Hilton Pyramids Resort in Cairo, Egypt, today.
Sundowns will avoid facing Zamalek, Etoile du Sahel and USM Alger, because they are in the same pot.
But with three North African teams in Pot 1, Sundowns will find themselves facing opposition from the North in case because Pot 1 has Esperance (Tunisia), Wydad (Morocco), Al Ahly (Egypt), as well as TP Mazembe (DRC).
CAF Champions League draw pots:
Esperance (Tunisia), TP Mazembe (DRC), Wydad (Morocco), Al Ahly (Egypt)
Sundowns (RSA), Etoile du Sahel (Tunisia), Zamalek (Egypt), USM Alger (Algeria)
Raja Casablanca (Morocco), Zesco (Zambia), AS Vita (DR Congo), Al Hilal (Sudan)
Primeiro (Angola), FC Platinum (Zim), Petro Luanda (Angola), JS Kabylie (Algeria)
