Africa Soccer Pitso’s Al Ahly Leading CAF 21st Century Rankings In Top 20

The latest CAF 21st century club rankings exposed the gap between Pitso Mosimane’s Al Ahly and teams like Mamelodi Sundowns and Orlando Pirates.

According to the latest ranking by CAF, which shows the ranking of teams between the period of 2001 and 2021 – which are based on the continental competition results obtained in the last 20 completed club seasons, only Sundowns come close to the continent’s perennial giants.

Leading the pack is Mosimane’s Al Ahly. They who have won the CAF Champions League on nine occasions are well ahead of their closest rivals, TP Mazembe with a staggering 84 points.

North African teams predominantly occupied the top 20. With the likes of TP Mazembe, Esperance De Tunis, Etoile Du Sahel and Zamalek all making up the top five.
