CAF Champions League

Action from the qualifying round of the CAF Champions League resumed on Saturday with eight games.

At Omdurman, Sudan:

Al-Merrikh dominated visiting Sony Ela Nguema 4-1 in game two of their two-match series and took out the club from Equatorial Guinea 5-1 on aggregate.

At Niamey, Niger:

Despite dropping a 3-1 game-two road decision to AS FAN, AS Tanda from the Ivory Coast won their two-match series 4-3 on aggregate.

At Rabat, Morocco:

Karim Benarif (19'), Yusupha Njie (78'), and Hicham El Araoul (90'+3) each scored once as FUS Rabat dominated visiting Johansen from Sierra Leone 3-0 in game two and took their series 4-1 on aggregate.

At Kigali, Rwanda:

Taonga Bwembya scored the game and series-winning goal in the 17th minute as Zanaco from Zambia defeated the Rwandan Patriotic Army (known by the French acronym APR) 1-0 on the road in game two and advanced to the first round proper by that same score on aggregate.

At Dar es Salaam, Tanzania:

A 1-1 game-two home deadlock with Ngaya Club of Comoros was more than good enough for Young Africans as the Tanzanian club handily won their two-match series 6-2 on aggregate.

At Gaborone, Botswana:

Despite dropping a 3-2 game-two road decision to Township Rollers, CNaPS Sport of Madagascar, with the aggregate score at 4-4, still won their series on away goals.

At Juba, South Sudan:

A 4-1 game-two road domination of Altabara enabled Coton Sport from Cameroon to finish off the South Sudanese club 6-1 on aggregate.

At Johannesburg, South Africa:

Bidvest Wits bounced back from their series-opening 2-1 setback by dominating visiting Saint-Louisienne from Reunion 3-1 in game two and won their series 4-3 on aggregate.
