CAF Champions League Format

The 2023-2024 edition of the CAF Champions League will be played in a new format. So, before you engage in betting activities, it is important to understand how the competition will unfold.

To begin with, we'll have a qualifier. In this round, 54 teams from 42 associations will compete. From there, the ten highest-ranked teams will be exempted, while the remaining teams will be divided into three pots. The division, in this case, will purely be based on their club coefficient.

Once the qualifiers are over, the next CAF Champions League draw is the First Preliminary round. Here, teams from Pot 1 will be drawn against the teams in Pot 2. The winners of each match will then advance to the Second Preliminary round, where they will be drawn against the teams in Pot 3.

As soon as the Second Preliminary round concludes, the respective winners will advance to the next phase, aka the CAF Champions League group stage. It will involve 16 teams divided into 4 groups of 4. The teams will play each other twice in the usual home and away format. Post-completion, the top two teams (from each group) will head over to the knockout stages.

A total of 8 teams will reach the knockout stages of the CAF Champions League and will take part in the general draws—quarter-finals, semi-finals, and final. All fixtures in this regard will be played home and away, with the away goals rule being applied.

In case the aggregate score is tied after the second leg, extra time will be played. If the score stands as a tie after the added time, a penalty shootout will determine the winner.

Note: The winner of the 2023-2024 CAF Champions League will directly qualify for the 2024 edition of the FIFA Club World Cup.

CAF Champions League Facts

Introducing the CAF Champions League, Africa's top club football tournament. Started in 1964 by the Confederation of African Football (CAF), this competition is a big deal in African soccer. The reigning champs, Al Ahly from Egypt, have won it a record 11 times. Egypt is the most successful country with 17 titles, followed by Morocco with 7.

Now, let's dive into more fascinating CAF Champions League facts:

  • ⚽ 26 clubs have claimed the trophy, with 12 of them winning it more than once.
  • ⚽ The most successful coach is Manuel José, who clinched the title 4 times.
  • ⚽ Due to political issues in Africa, the competition had to pause twice, in 1972 and 1985.
  • ⚽ Sadly, violence has also tainted the CAF Champions League. In 2014, a match between Al Ahly and Esperance of Tunisia had to be abandoned because of fan riots.
  • ⚽ In the context of CAF, many confuse Al Ahly with Al Ahly Benghazi. But in reality, they are different. While the former is a football club based in Cairo, Egypt, the latter is based in Benghazi, Libya. Benghazi is one of the most successful teams in the Libyan Cup. In the final Al Ahly Benghazi overcame their opponent 12 times.

CAF Champions League Teams

As already mentioned, CAFCL makes room for 54 teams representing a total of 42 African associations. Now, before looking at the team list, you'll need to understand that the associations can enter the competition with either one or two teams.

The CAF determines which associations can send two teams and which are restricted to only one team. The decision is based on various factors that involve the competitiveness of the respective national leagues.

Associations with strong national leagues (often represented by successful clubs in recent CAF Champions League editions) can send two teams. However, associations with less competitive national leagues are limited to just one option.

African Champions League Betting Tips

CAF Champions League Betting Tips

Wagering on soccer matches is exciting, but the same can be daunting for those who lack a proper strategy. But don't worry, you're in safe hands. Check the following CAF Champions League betting tips and make next-to-accurate predictions.

  • Check the Odds: Odds comparison is vital. Look at the values assigned to each team in a match. The team with the lower odds is usually considered the favorite to win, like Al Ahly Benghazi, with odds of 1.27. Betting on the favorite can be safer, but you might not win as much money because the CAF Champion League odds for this team are lower.
  • Research the Teams: Before predicting CAF Champions League results, learn about the teams playing. Are they in good form? Do they have key players injured? Understanding the teams' strengths and weaknesses can help you make a better bet.
  • Backing Favorites: When betting on CAF Champions League matches, consider backing the team with lower pre-match odds to win. For instance, in the game between Al Hilal Omdurman and Al Ahly Tripoli, where Al Ahly Tripoli has odds of 1.27 for a home victory (Compared to 8.77 for Al Hilal Omdurman), they are the favorites.
  • Home Advantage: Teams playing at home often have a slight advantage. Odds comparison will play a role in this regard as well. For example, if Orlando Pirates are playing at their home stadium, it might be worth considering them as a choice. You can easily say that by looking at the odds.
  • Beware of Underdogs: Sometimes, underdog teams like Remo Stars can pull off surprises. If the odds for an underdog are really high (like 8.77 for Al Hilal Omdurman), a small bet on them could lead to a big payout if they win.
  • Stay Informed: Keep up with the latest news and updates about the teams and the tournament. Injuries, changes in coaching staff, or other factors can impact a team's performance.
  • Consider Different Bets: You don't have to only bet on the winner. There are other types of bets, like over/under goals or goal scorers, that can be interesting and potentially more profitable.
