23 April 2007 15:07

CAIRO (AFP) - ASEC of Ivory Coast and Esperance of Tunisia clinched record eighth appearances in the African Champions League group phase at the weekend.

Defending champions Al-Ahly of Egypt qualified a seventh time and their four consecutive appearances (1999-2002) is a feat matched only by former title holders Enyimba of Nigeria (2003-2006).

At the other end of the scale, Al-Hilal of Sudan and Al-Ittihad of Libya became the first clubs from their countries to reach the pool phase, and FAR Rabat of Morocco are the other newcomers.
