Two giants of African football, Tout Puissant Mazembe and Al Ahly, are set to renew their rivalry in the semi-finals of the CAF Champions League, marking a monumental encounter after a hiatus of 12 years. The first leg of this epic showdown is scheduled to take place on Saturday, April 20, at the Stade TP Mazembe in Lubumbashi, Democratic Republic of Congo, at 2:00 p.m. GMT.

The encounter between Mazembe and Al Ahly not only promises an intense battle on the pitch but also reignites memories of their last duel in 2012.

Back then, the two teams faced off in the group stage, with Al Ahly securing a victory in Cairo (2-1), while Mazembe triumphed in Lubumbashi (2-0), thanks in part to two assists from Trésor Mputu.

For Mazembe, the return to the semi-finals of the CAF Champions League marks a resurgence under the leadership of coach Lamine Ndiaye, who previously guided the team in 2012.

Despite the absence of captain Kevin Mondeko due to injury, Ndiaye remains confident in his squad’s collective strength, emphasizing that success lies in teamwork rather than individual brilliance.

Meanwhile, Al Ahly arrives at the semi-finals as formidable opponents, boasting an impressive record of seven wins and three draws in 10 matches.

Coach Marcel Koller has made it clear that his team is determined to secure victory in Lubumbashi, underscoring their ambition to continue their unbeaten run in the competition.

As anticipation builds for the clash between these two football powerhouses, sports analyst Bela-Luc Mukandila believes that Mazembe’s recent performances indicate their potential to overcome the challenge posed by Al Ahly.
