CAF Champions League: African football giants TP Mazembe seek redemption against Petro Atlético


TP Mazembe, the revered football powerhouse from the Democratic Republic of Congo, is poised for a triumphant return to the spotlight as they gear up for the TotalEnergies CAF Champions League quarter-finals.

With a rich history of success in continental competitions, including two CAF Champions League titles and a FIFA Club World Cup final appearance, the Lushois are determined to reignite their winning legacy.

Having secured a second-place finish in Group A behind Mamelodi Sundowns, TP Mazembe now sets their sights on Petro Atlético in the quarter-finals.

The Ravens will kick off their campaign on 30 March at 13:00 GMT at the iconic Mazembe Stadium, followed by an away fixture in Luanda on 6 April.

Notably, the last encounter between these two teams dates back to 15 March, 2009, where TP Mazembe emerged victorious in a double clash, igniting hopes of a repeat performance fifteen years later.

Under the astute leadership of coach Lamine N’Diaye, TP Mazembe exudes confidence and determination. The Senegalese tactician boasts an impressive track record, having guided the team to domestic glory and now seeks to lead them back to continental prominence.

At the heart of TP Mazembe’s aspirations lies forward Joel Beya, a hometown hero revered for his scoring prowess and selfless play.

With a reputation as the top assist provider in the championship in 2022, Beya aims to leave an indelible mark on this edition of the Champions League and elevate the pride of Lubumbashi to new heights.

TP Mazembe’s storied journey in continental football is underscored by an illustrious trophy cabinet, featuring 19 national championship titles, five DR Congo Cup triumphs, and five CAF Champions League victories.

Their formidable presence on the African stage is further highlighted by three CAF TotalEnergies Super Cup triumphs and two Confederation Cup conquests.

As TP Mazembe embarks on their quest for glory in the TotalEnergies CAF Champions League quarter-finals, the echoes of their past triumphs resonate with fervor.

With a blend of experience, talent, and unwavering determination, the Lushois are poised to shine once again and reclaim their rightful place among the continent’s football elite.
