Rivers United (Nigeria)
The Pride of Rivers were crowned the champions after wrapping the season with seventy-seven points. They were formidable in all their matches last season, breaking the league record of seventy-three points in a season. They racked up twenty-two points away from home in division, one of the best records in the history of the tournament.
The last time they were in this competition was in 2017; after winning the first round, they were knocked out by Sudan's Al-Merrikh 4–3 on aggregate. However, they progressed to the second round after conquering Liberian side Watanga (3-1) on aggregate in the first round.
Wydad Casablanca (Morocco)
The three times CAF Champions League winners were magnificent in the just-concluded season after defeating Al Ahly (0-2) in the finals. Having conquered the continent, Wydad also secured their domestic league as Raja Casablanca watched on.
Wydad Casablanca have been so fortunate that whatever they touch turns into silverware. The Red Castle would go against one of the most formidable opponents in the competition tomorrow, and top performance is the only option that will guarantee them success here.
