SA's CAF Duo Would Only Meet In The Final
What Are The CAF Dates For SuperSport And Platinum Stars?
SuperSport United and Platinum Stars have some tough games on the horizon if they’re going to make it out of the CAF Confederation Cup group stages.
A total of 12 games each stands before the two South African clubs and a continental trophy in November, with difficult trips to countries such as the DRC, Algeria and Tunisia on the horizon over the coming months.
SuperSport booked their spot in the groups by beating Barrack Young Controllers from Liberia, while Dikwena needed penalties to get past Ivorian outfit, AS Tanda.
The two clubs will get the group stage underway in the second weekend of May against Horoya and MC Alger in home games, while they also end it at home against CF Mounana and Mbabane Swallows respectively.
Given the fact that the two South African clubs have been drawn in groups B and D, the only chance they have of meeting each other in the competition is if they both reach the final.
