The Top Goalscorers In CAFCL This Season So Far

One of the players Kaizer Chiefs will be facing in the CAF Champions League semi-final and another who dreams of a transfer to Amakhosi sit among the competition’s top goalscorers this season so far.

The Glamour Boys will meet Wydad Casablanca in the last four after qualifying for the semi-finals of the competition for a first time in their history.

However, while none of Chiefs players are sitting among the top scorers in the CAFCL this campaign, Wydad’s Ayoub El Kaabi has netted four goals so far.

The 27-year-old features in sixth place among the top marksmen in the competition, while Simba S.C. forward Clatous Chama appears in joint-third.

The 29-year-old, told iDiski Times in edition 20 last week that he is still hopeful of a transfer to Naturena, has scored five times this campaign.

Only Al Merreikh’s Saifeldin Malik Bakhit, with six goals and Belouizdad’s Amir Sayoud, who netted twice in the group stage against Mamelodi Sundowns, with eight goals have scored more.

Here are all the top CAFCL goalscorers so far:

  1. Amir Sayoud (Belouizdad) – 8 goals
  2. Saifeldin Malik Bakhit (Merreikh) – 6 goals
  3. Clatous Chama (Simba) – 5 goals
  4. Mohamed Ali Ben Romdhane (Esperance) – 5 goals
  5. Firas Chaouat (Sfaxien) – 5 goals
  6. Ayoub El Kaabi (Wydad Casablanca) – 4 goals

Interestingly, neither Chiefs nor Pitso Mosimane’s Al Ahly have a player among the top scorers in the CAFCL this campaign.
