Mamelodi Sundowns and Kaizer Chiefs have learnt their fates in the Caf Champions League after the draw for the last eight took place on Friday afternoon at the Caf headquarters in Cairo, Egypt.
The Tshwane giants will take on Al Ahly, coached by the club’s former mentor Pitso Mosimane, while Chiefs, who are in their maiden group stage season have been drawn against Simba.
Mosimane will face Sundowns for the first time since his shock resignation back in September 2020 to head to Cairo.
Chiefs surprised many by qualifying for the quarterfinal as they finished their Group in second place behind Wydad Casablanca.
MC Alger will play Wydad Casablanca, and Belouizdad will play Esperance in the other quarter-finals.
This was the first time that two South African teams qualified for the quarter-finals.
