Dreams were the first to secure a place in the last four after overcoming former champions, Stade Malien in Kumasi thanks to a 3-2 aggregate victory.

Egyptian powerhouse, Zamalek SC, had to dig deep against a spirited Modern Future FC in Cairo, as they edged their Egyptian counterparts in a closely contested encounter to advance to the next stage of the competition.

After holding Abu Salim to a goalless draw in the first leg, two-time champions RS Berkane emerged victorious in a five-goal thriller to advance 3-2 in a closely contested tie in Morocco, while defending champions, USM Alger, cruised into the semifinals with a comfortable 2-0 victory over Nigeria’s Rivers United as they remain on course to defend their title.
