Ducor Sports Coverage of Top Leagues Across Africa

In Algeria, Esperance de Setif is on a 7-point lead with five matches to the end of the league. Setif has lost only six times in 25 outings including Saturday’s 1-0 loss to MC Oran.

MC Alger sits second after a 2-1 victory over DRB Tadjenanet in a bid to also qualify for the Total CAF Champions League. CA Batna and MO Bejaia occupy the table basement with 12 and 14 defeats respectively.


It was Match Day 13 in Cameroon’s Elite One. Eding Sport failed to open a four-point gap on closest rivals and second-placed Stade Renard who were humbled 3-2 by mid-table Less Astress over the weekend. A 1-1 draw with APEJES Academy denied Eding full points but still remain top of the table.

Racing, New Star, and Lion Blesse are on the unfortunate end of the table. Games will resume on Saturday where a herculean task awaits second-from-bottom New Star who visits table leaders Eding, at the Stade de Municipal de Mfou.

Cote d’Ivoire

It was a bad day at the office for headline-makers ASEC Mimosas who were brought down to earth by 9th-placed San-Pedro. A lone goal was enough to ruin the league leader’s day. 20 games gone, Mimosas has won ten games and drawn seven. WAC, Sewe Sport, and African Sport are 2nd, 3rd, and 4th respectively. Moossou and JCAT fill in the two relegation spots.

DR Congo

A do or die affair prevails in the Democratic Republic of Congo’s Super League. The first division divided into three –East, Central, and Western conference – is at its peak with three of the best performers in each zone making up the title play-offs.

Multiple winners TP Mazembe, lead the way in the title play-offs after seven games but is being trailed by Motema Pembe who is a point adrift of the erstwhile African champions.

AS Vita Club sits third with 9 points after delivering a shocking 1-0 win over leaders Mazembe on Sunday.


WAFA runs the risk of being upstaged should it face any more hitches following a 2-1 loss to third-placed Hearts of Oak on Monday. Despite the setback, the club is a joint-top leader with Aduana Stars.

Business resumes on Sunday with Aduana coming up against fifth-placed Bechem United, in their next game. Inter Allies pays a visit to WAFA on the same day. Surprises can’t be ruled out in this clash but pundits predict an easy affair for WAFA.

It’s just 14 games gone in the GFA League. Great Olympics Bolga All Stars and Ashanti Gold may be cursing their lack-of-luck-dose with the trio sides seated on the bottom of the table.


Posta Rangers is showing no glimpse of loosening its grip on the top position. A fragile two points make the difference after second-placed Gor Mahia beat Leopards 3-0 on Sunday. Only two teams – Kariobangi Sharks and Mathre United – have played more games than any side in the league.

Rangers has 21 points after 9 outings and visits underperforming Muhoroni Youth lunchtime today (Wednesday, May 10) at the 3000-capacity Muhoroni Park.


Champions, Kampala City Capital Authority Football Club (KCCA) made it back-to-back with three games to spare, to secure the trophy. Goals from Masiko and Serunkuuma ensured KCCA beat Lweza to clinch the title for the 12th time. Hot shot Serunkuuma has netted 20 goals already.

South Africa

The table is on the brink of slowly turning around in the South African Premier Soccer League. Champions Mamelodi Sundowns who was way off target in an attempt to grab the title is now one of two favorites to land the staked prize. The Brazilians are three points short of leveling with table-toppers, Bidvest Wits but could change with a win over Baroka in today’s game (Wednesday, May 10) and a loss for Wits to relegation-threatened Free State Stars.

Cape Town, one-time contenders for the gong, dramatically slid to third. The heated chase for the title could potentially go down to the final match of the season with two games to end this season’s campaign.

Highlands Park, Baroka Free State Stars, and Chippa United are the outfits in the relegation dogfight. Meanwhile, Cape Town City striker Lebogang Manyama, has equaled Zimbabwe’s Tendai Ndoro on the scoring chart. The pair is on 12 goals each.

Morocco, Egypt, and Tunisia

Wydad Casablanca is three points shy of clutching the Botola gong. The 2-0 win over Hassania Agadir on Sunday only added to the capital club’s impressive streak of 17 wins with a single loss in 27 games.

In neighboring Tunisia, ES Tunis is the side to beat. The title play-offs are tense but Tunis is in pole position to secure the accolade despite pressure from Etoile Du Sahel.

Over to Egypt, Al Ahly continues to headline the domestic championship with six games to go. The runaway leaders are yet to bite the dust this term in all 28 games.
