Confederation of African Football (CAF) has set April 4 for a game between Egypt’s giant of Al Ahly and Mamelodi Sundowns F.C. in the quarterfinals of Champions League.

The Reds booked their place in the knockout stages after winning Group D.

Meanwhile، Sundowns secured their place in the last eight after finishing second in Group A behind Moroccan giants Wydad Casablanca.

The first leg will be held in South Africa.

This will be the first meeting between the two former Champions League winners since 2007.

Al Ahly، who have won a record eight Champions League titles، beat Sundowns 4-2 on aggregate in the second-round matches 12 years ago.

The two teams also met in the 2001 Caf Champions League final with Al Ahly winning 4-1 on aggregate in what was Sundowns' first continental final.

CAF also set April 12 for the second leg in Cairo.
