The Governing body of African football (CAF) has decided to host the remainder of the African Champions league matches in its usual home and away format.
Last month, CAF made the decision to complete the remaining African champions League games in a ‘final four’ format which the four finalists were supposed to play a one-off semi-final tie and the final.
However, Cameroon who were expected to host the mini tournament rejected CAF’S proposal to host the event citing the recent spike in coronavirus cases and the climate conditions in their country as the reason.
In reaction to Cameroon’s decision, CAF has decided to use the tournament’s original format in completing the rest of the games with a small twist.
The semi-finals will be played in a two-legged affair but if two teams from the same country qualify for the final, that country will host the final event but if not then the Champions League winner will be decided on neutral grounds.
Eight-time winners Al Ahly of Cairo will play Wydad Casablanca in the semi-finals with Zamalek, also of Egypt, taking on another Moroccan club, Raja Casablanca.
