Cape Town - Ajax Cape Town, Bidvest Wits, Kaizer Chiefs and Mamelodi Sundowns will all be hopeful at progressing in their respective CAF campaigns this weekend.

All four teams are in preliminary continental action at home this weekend, and with the exception of Sundowns, hold strong positions after positive results in last week's opening CAF fixtures.

Ajax are up against Angolan outfit Sagrada Esperanca at Athlone Stadium on Saturday night in a Confederation Cup encounter (19:30 kick-off), the Urban Warriors enjoying a 2-1 advantage after last week's lengthy trip up north.

They approach the game on the back of a midweek loss to Free State Stars in the league, but have been in decent form of late, with two wins and a draw in their last four matches in all competitions.

Good news too for Downs fans is that game-breaker Khama Billiat will be available after missing last weekend's game.
