The Brazilians lost to Wydad in the semifinals of last season’s competition with the two teams regular adversaries on the continent over the past few years.


Wydad have gotten the better over their South African opponents in most of the meetings, especially in Morocco, but Sundowns will have a chance for revenge when they lock horns in the group stages of the 2019-20 Caf Champions League.


The two clubs are joined by Angola’s Atletico Petroleos and Algerian club U.S.M.A in Group C.
