CAF Announce Club Rankings, Chiefs Above Bucs

CAF have announced the official Club Ranking of the best teams on the continent, with Kaizer Chiefs sitting above Orlando Pirates.

Both Soweto giants, though, are sitting outside the top 10, which includes South Africa’s reigning DStv Premiership champions.

Mamelodi Sundowns appear in sixth position after collecting 46 points in CAF’s ranking over the past five seasons.

Chiefs, meanwhile, appear in 14th position following their heroic run to the CAF Champions League final in 2020/21.

While Amakhosi have collected 25 points in CAF’s ranking, bitter rivals Pirates sit in 22nd place with 16 points.

Meanwhile, Pitso Mosimane’s Al Ahly sit at the top of the ranking with 78 points after winning back-to-back Champions League titles under their South African coach.

Below is the complete top 10 in CAF’s Club ranking:

  1. Al Ahly (Egypt)
  2. Esperance (Tunisia)
