ESPN FC's Steve Nicol and Alejandro Moreno discuss what Manchester City's comeback win means for both their UEFA Champions League and Premier League campaigns.
Injured midfielders David Silva and Yaya Toure trained with their teammates as Manchester City prepared to face Borussia Monchengladbach in the UEFA Champions League.

Africa's club competitions continue to capture attention as two teams from the same country in each tournament are struggling to make it into the final, but there was also some international news. Some of the continents' lesser lights made impressive progress in the FIFA rankings and Africa's second-ranked team could be preparing for the end of an era for one of their greatest players.

Zamalek conceded five goals in a match for the first time since 2005.
Zamalek conceded five goals in a match for the first time since 2005.

It's not often that a second-tier cup competition eclipses it's more glamorous counterpart, but that is exactly what happened in Africa last weekend. The first leg of the semifinals of both the CAF Champions League and CAF Confederation Cup were played and the results of the former -- 2-1 victories for Al-Merrikh and USM Alger over TP Mazembe and Al-Hilal, respectively -- were forgotten in the aftermath of one of the outcomes in the latter.

Al-Ahly are out to repeat their 2014 CAF Confederation Cup glory as they face Orlando Pirates in the semifinals.

It's semifinal weekend in Africa's two club competitions, the CAF Champions League and the CAF Confederation Cup. Thus, it's no surprise those fixtures dominate this week's news.

This is the fifth time two teams from the same country have reached the Champions League final four, with Sudan's Al-Merreikh and Al-Hilal in action, and the third time two teams from the same country have played in the Confederation Cup semis with Egypt's Zamalek and Al-Ahly in action. However, it is the first time...

Man City's Kelechi Iheanacho could provide Nigeria with boost

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini insists that Nigerian teenager Kelechi Iheanacho, who scored the game winner, will be very important for the team in the future.

Kelechi Iheanacho was the only name worth knowing in African football this week as the young Nigerian scored a goal that could kickstart his career. He was on the park for just 54 seconds when he netted the winner for Manchester City against Crystal Palace and catapulted himself into the spotlight. But Iheanacho was not the only Nigerian doing well abroad. Take a look at who else made headlines.

Sunday Oliseh off the mark for Nigeria while Ghana has a new champion

Sunday Oliseh got off the mark as Nigeria coach this week with a 2-0 friendly win over Niger.

The international window over the last week left some space for African teams to digest the latest round of 2017 African Nations' Cup (ANC) qualifiers, where South Africa sit at the bottom of their group.

Elsewhere, Nigeria recovered from a disappointing result in their ANC qualifier to give their new coach Sunday Oliseh his first victory. Gabon gained a player, Sudan are searching for a coach and Ghana crowned a new league champion.
