CAF Confederation Cup: Pyramids FC and USM Alger win and advance to the quarterfinals

There were two places in the quarterfinals up for grabs when the 2022-23 CAF Confederation Cup finished up the group stage on Sunday with Algeria’s USM Alger and Pyramids FC of Egypt confirming their advancement to the knockout stages. Pyramids defeated fellow Egyptian side Future FC by a 2-1 score at the June 30 Stadium in Cairo to finish as runners-up in Group C behind Moroccan club ASFAR, who played to a 1-1 draw in Togo against last placed ASKO Kara.

USM Alger needed only a draw in Algiers on Sunday to advance and USMA dominated Libya’s Al Akhdar 4-1 to secure second position in Group A. USMA finish as runners-up in Group A, one point behind South Africa’s Marumo Gallants. It appeared Gallants would finish in second after falling behind 2-0 to Congolese club FC Saint-Éloi Lupopo but the team currently at the foot of the table in South Africa’s DStv Premiership scored three goals in five minutes to complete an amazing comeback victory at the Dobsonville Stadium in Johannesburg.

The other two groups decided their group winners on Sunday. Ivorian champions ASEC Mimosas defeated Rivers United 1-0 to finish at the top of Group B while their Nigerian opponents finish in second place. In Group D, Tanzanian club Young Africans edged Tunisia’s US Monastir for top spot following a 1-0 victory over Congolese giants TP Mazembe in Lubumbashi, leaving the Dar es Salaam club tied with Monastir on thirteen points but ahead on goal differential.
