Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns will play either Wydad Casablanca or Zesco United in the CAF Champions League semi-finals.

Wydad were winners of the competition in 1992 and runners-up in 2011. The Moroccans are coached by Liverpool legend and former Real Madrid coach John Toshack.

Meanwhile, Zesco are seemingly a side on the rise in the African continent. The Zambians have a strong home record and will face Wydad in Ndola on Wednesday.

Team Ya Ziko have to win to top Group A and avoid facing the Brazilians, while Wydad only need a draw to secure the group and steer clear of Pitso Mosimane's men.

Sundowns take on Enyimba in a match which has no bearing on the semi-final matches as the side from South Africa have already won the group.

Bafana Bastyle are considered one of the favourites to win the tournament after winning all of their group matches.
