According to reports coming in, the Confederation of African Football (CAF) Champions League semi-final will return to its two-leg format instead of the one-leg format recently approved by the CAF.
All continental sports activities have been suspended since March due to the coronavirus pandemic, including the CAF Champions League and the CAF Confederation Cup, which were originally scheduled to be played on 1 May.
On 30th June 2020, the CAF announced that the Champions League and the Confederation Cup will resume in September in a final four format, while the semi-finals will be played in a single match.
Egypt recently announced that it has officially requested to host the remaining matches of the Champions League after Cameroon withdrew due to the coronavirus pandemic and the strict measures required to host games.
Prior to the CAF competitions’ postponement, Egypt’s big names Ahly and Zamalek had been set to play the Champions League semi-finals against Moroccan sides Wydad de Casablanca and Raja de Casablanca respectively.
