Cairo. Tanzanian champions Simba SC have on Friday January 8 drawn Egyptian power house Al-Ahly in Group A of the Confederation of Africa Champions’ League group stage at a draw that was held in Cairo.

This is the second time that the Msimbazi side has drawn the Egyptians after the two sides were drawn in the same group in the 2018- 2019 Champions’ league group stage.

Also in the same group is Congo’s AS Vita who also featured in the same group with Simba two years ago, with Sudan’s Al-Merrikh SC being the other contenders in the four-team group.

During the 2018-2019 edition Simba was a 5-0 defeat at the hands of Al –Ahly in Cairo only for the Msimbazi side to redeem themselves with a win courtesy of a solitary goal by Meddie Kagere at the Benjamin Mkapa Stadium.

AS vita will look to avenge their elimination two years ago by Simba in the dying minutes of the game after they lost 2-1 for Simba and Al-Ahly to qualify for the quarter finals.
