ASEC Mi­mosas of Ivory Coast, who host Steve Kom­phela s Kaizer Chiefs, go into to­day s sec­ond leg match with a 1-0 lead, with the Ivo­rians po­si­tioned to ad­vance to the Last-16 round of the CAF Cham­pi­ons League.

So are Etoile Sa­hel of Tu­nisia af­ter hold­ing Olympique Khouribga 1-1 in Morocco.

It would be a shock if de­fend­ing cham­pi­ons TP Mazembe of the Demo­cratic Re­pub­lic of Congo and 2014 ti­tle-hold­ers En­tente Setif of Al­ge­ria did not qual­ify af­ter forc­ing away draws last week­end.

A multi­na­tional Mazembe out­fit that has changed French coaches, with Hu­bert Ve­lud re­plac­ing out-of­con­tract Pa­trice Carteron, held Saint Ge­orge 2-2 in Ethiopia.

Setif left Congo Braz­zav­ille with a 1-1 draw against Etoile, a re­sult that con­firmed the Black Ea­gles as favourites for the round-of-16 next month.

For­mer cham­pi­ons who are in po­ten­tial trou­ble are Club Africain of Tu­nisia and V Club of DR Congo, who man­aged only 1-0 first-leg vic­to­ries. Africain face Cham­pi­ons League debu­tants Mouloudia Be­jaia of Al­ge­ria in an in­trigu­ing North African show­down.

V Club meet Fer­roviario Ma­puto of Mozam­bique in an early chal­lenge for im­pres­sive Con­golese coach Florent Ibenge. CAF Cham­pi­ons League Last-32 To­day: In Ma­puto: Fer­roviario Ma­puto (Mozam­bique) vs V Club (Demo­cratic Re­pub­lic of Congo) (0-1) 1pm.
