Five CAF Champions League facts

11 March 2016, 11:01

Johannesburg -Five CAF Champions League facts ahead of last-32 fixtures this weekend:

-- TP Mazembe will become the first club to win back-to-back titles three times if they retain the trophy this year. The Democratic Republic of Congo club (1967-1968 and 2009-2010) and Al Ahly of Egypt (2005-2006 and 2012-2013) have achieved the feat twice.

-- Al Hilal of Sudan will be competing for a record 29th time this year. The next most regular participants, Al Ahly (27th appearance) and ASEC Mimosas of Ivory Coast (25th), are also involved in the competition this season.

-- The most successful CAF clubs -- Al Ahly (19 titles) and Mazembe, Etoile Sahel of Tunisia and Zamalek of Egypt (nine each) -- are 2016 title contenders. Ahly face Libolo of Angola, Mazembe meet Saint George of Ethiopia, Etoile play Khouribga of Morocco and Zamalek tackle Union Douala of Cameroon.

-- Only one debutant club this year, Mouloudia Bejaia of Algeria, have reached the round-of-32, after a thrilling 3-2 overall preliminary-round victory over AshantiGold of Ghana. The club from a Mediterranean port city east of Algiers have been drawn against Club Africain of Tunisia.

-- A powerful last-32 field includes 11 clubs who have won the CAF Champions League (formerly African Cup of Champions Clubs), three who lifted the now defunct African Cup Winners Cup and two who raised the CAF Confederation Cup.
