CAF Champions League Review: Sundowns snare first-leg advantage over Casablanca

Updated: 

Mamelodi Sundowns' hopes of retaining their CAF Champions League crown remain on track following a 1-0 win over Wydad Casablanca in the first-leg of their quarter-final clash.

Ivory Coast striker Yannick Zakri poked home the only goal in the 71st minute to give the South African side a slender advantage ahead of next Saturday's return.

Meanwhile, Libyan outfit Al Ahli Tripoli face a tough task to reach the semi-finals after being held to a 0-0 home draw by a 10-man Etoile du Sahel.

The visitors suffered a setback when attacker Diego Acosta was sent off late in the first half, but they held on to take a scoreless draw back to Tunisia.
