In southern Africa only two clubs have made it to the quater finals and all coming from South Africa. The two are in- form Mamelodi Sundowns who have arguably proven to be the strongest team to face in the competition so far and looks like a side that is ready to win the champions league.

The other club from southern Africa is Kaizer Chiefs fc that qualified as runners up on away goal rule after a 2-2 draw with Horoya fc. Despite struggling in their local league, the Amakhosi are not in the competition to be punching bags and southern Africans will be hoping they go all the way to the final and even win the league.
