CAF Champions League: Wydad eliminate title-holders TP Mazembe

CAF Champions League: Wydad eliminate title-holders TP Mazembe

Democratic Republic Of Congo

Title-holders TP Mazembe crashed out of the CAF Champions League on Wednesday after drawing 1-1 at home with Wydad Casablanca of Morocco.

The Moroccans, led by former Real Madrid boss John Toshack, scored late in DR Congo to earn a second-leg 1-1 draw.

The result, coupled with a 2-0 last 16 first leg loss in North Africa, meant the five-time champions lost 3-1 on aggregate and were demoted to the CAF Confederation Cup.

Meanwhile, the tie between Enyimba and Etoile du Sahel went to penalties, with the Nigerian side going through.

Enyimba will join 1992 champions Wydad and six other clubs in the May 24 group draw thanks to a 4-3 penalty shootout win against Etoile du Sahel of Tunisia.
