CAF Champions League final: Its Heartland V TP Mazembe

Nigeria’s Heartland will play against TP Mazembe of Congo in the final of this year’s CAF Champions League.

Heartland who qualified for the final over a week ago following a 5-0 aggregate win over Kano Pillars had to wait until yesterday to know their foes in the final.

Heartland’s Signs Wonders Chimbambo (Right)

TP Mazembe had beaten Sudan’s Al Hilal 5-2 in Sudan two weeks ago and it seemed they would be playing in the final for sure but things almost turned around in Lumumbashi on Sunday.

Having lost at home, the Sudanes needed to win 3-0 to qualify for the final and they got close to achieving that.

Edward Sadomba scored twice for Al Hilal in the 26th and 57th minutes of the game to give the Sudanese a 2-0 win but that was not enough to take them to the final.

TP Mazembe will now visit Owerri on October 31st for the final’s first leg against Heartland.

Have your say. We'd love to know what you think.
