Libya's Al-Ahli Benghazi lost 0-4 in the second leg match against South Africa's Mamelodi Sundowns at the round of 32 of the CAF Champions League.

The match was played in South Africa and after a first clean half, the host team scored four consecutive goals against the Libyan team, thus moving forward to the next round, while kicking Al-Ahli Benghazi out of the competition.

Al-Ahli Benghazi has now automatically qualified for the round of 32 B of the CAF Confederation Cup, which hosts the teams kicked out of the Champions League.

In Tunisia, Libya's Al-Ittihad lost 0-1 against Nahda Burkan from Morocco in the second leg match of the CAF Confederation Cup.

Al-Ittihad - whose fans had many troubles on the road to Tunisia where the match is hosted as Libya is still banned from holding matches in its stadiums over security reasons - put a very poor performance and thus the Moroccans managed to win for the second time after winning the first leg in Morocco 3-0.

On Sunday, the two remaining Libyan teams will play their second leg matches.

Al-Nasser will play Horoya of Guinea away after beating it 3-0 in the first leg match, while Al-Ahli Tripoli will play Cameroon’s New Star de Douala in Cameroon after drawing 1-1 in the first leg match.
