Algeria will certainly be pleased with their chances as the CAF Champions League approaches the final group stage. They are the only country in the competition's 51-year history to have three teams qualify for the last eight, which gives the country a massive 37.5 percent chance of winning the trophy.
Algerian loyalties will be divided between ES Setif, the current holders, MC El Eulma and USM Alger. Both ES Setif and MC El Eulma needed penalty shootouts to progress past the Second Round, while...
The Champions League semifinals get underway with Pep Guardiola's return to Barcelona with Bayern Munich and holders Real Madrid taking on Italian giants Juventus.
