Horoya reached the last eight of the Caf Champions League after former winners Mamelodi Sundowns crashed out of the competition.

“All expectations were that Wydad and Sundowns would be the ones to qualify from their group, but Horoya succeeded in booking a place in the quarters and that proves that we will be facing a strong team.
Al Ahly who finished top of Group A play away on 14 September in the first leg of the while the return leg will be played in Cairo eight days later.
“We are looking forward to achieving a positive result away in the first leg to make our mission easier in the return match. Ahly always play the matches to win.
