How Mamelodi Sundowns became the CAF Champions League's trickiest customer

Despite a mixed start to the 2019-20 domestic season, Tshwane giants Mamelodi Sundowns remain one of the teams to beat in the CAF Champions League, especially for unlikely rivals Wydad Casablanca.

Since becoming the second South African team to lift the title in 2016, the Brazilians have remained a thorn in the side of Africa's established giants, one of the few sides south of the Sahara to do regular damage to the northern teams.

CAF Champions League preview: Clash of the Titans

For the first time in the history of the CAF Champions League, the semifinal line-up will consist of the previous four winners, as Mamelodi Sundowns meet Wydad Casablanca, and Tout Puissant Mazembe and Esperance de Tunis clash in a pair of engrossing first legs.

Congolese giants Mazembe have had to wait the longest to get their hands on Africa's grandest club prize again, but are the most successful side still standing, having conquered the continent on five occasions since 1967.

Their last Champions...
