Mosimane's Ahly, on the other hand, qualified for a third consecutive Champions League final under his tutelage following a 6-2 aggregate victory over ES Setif. Should they defeat Wydad Casablanca next week Monday, it will be Mosimane's third African title with the Egyptian giants and fourth overall.

Incidentally, if the Buccaneers and the Red Devils win their respective finals, the clubs will meet in the African Super Cup in August, where Mosimane would pit his wits against a South African team once again. For good measure, in his time in North Africa, Mosimane's team defeated Kaizer Chiefs 3-0 in last year's Champions League final.

This is on top of pitting his wits against Mamelodi Sundowns on four occasions, a 3-1 aggregate victory in last year's tournament in the quarterfinals, and losing 1-0 home and away in this season's group stages.
