Coach Gavin Hunt will be taking the Soweto giants into the continent for the first time since his appointment in September, but is no stranger to the tournament after previously leading SuperSport United and more recently Bidvest Wits in the premier African inter-club competition.

His record finish, however, has been a second round exit back in 2010 when Matsatsantsa were bundled out by Nigeria's Heartland FC with a 4-2 aggregate defeat.

The four-time Premiership-winning tactician will be hoping to guide Chiefs into the group stages for the first time, with the competition having since increased the number of group qualifiers to 16 from the previous eight.
