Atlético Petróleos de Luanda finished as a runner up to Wydad Athletic of Morocco in Group D, they outclassed Zamalek who have won the trophy five times as they avoided defeat in both legs.
Their only defeat happened in the last match as they were heavily whipped by Wydad Athletic (5-1) away from home.
They were victorious in the first leg against Mamelodi Sundowns and fought for a point against Mamelodi Sundowns away as they qualified on (3-2) aggregate. That will go down as one of the shocking results in the history of the tournament.
