Mamelodi Sundowns will host Sudan-based team Al Hilal at the Loftus Versfeld Stadium on Saturday. Group B is another exciting group; however, two teams are favourites here. Mamelodi Sundowns and Al Ahly are tipped to pick up the first and second spot, respectively, but Florent Ibenge Al Hilal can’t be underestimated.Claim Your Welcome Bonus!
Mamelodi Sundowns (South Africa)
The Brazilians are one of the most exciting teams in Africa; their style of play can be compared to that of Manchester City in England. They won this competition in 2016, becoming the second South African team to be crowned champions.
Petro Luanda eliminated Mamelodi Sundowns in the quarterfinals following a dodgy penalty awarded to the visitors.
The Brazilians are doing pretty well in the league this season with fifty-five points from a possible sixty-one and are on a fourteen games unbeaten run.
Al Hilal (Sudan)
The Sudanese giant secured their domestic league title after topping their arch-rival Merreikh Al Sudan with three points. Two-time runners-up have made the top sixteen in the previous three seasons. Al Hilal are a dark horse in Group B because of their experienced coach Florentino Ibenge. Al-Hilal is an interesting team, considering they are a little bit different from last season because of the nine signings they’ve made and the change in the technical leadership with the Congolese coach who won the CAF Confederation Cup title with RSB Berkane last year.
