Holders Esperance of Tunisia will play Morocco's Wydad Casablanca in the final of this year's African Champions League.

Both sides secured 0-0 draws away from home in the second leg of their semi-finals on Saturday.

Esperance took a 1-0 lead to the Democratic Republic of Congo where TP Mazembe failed to overturn the deficit.

Wydad went through against South Africa's Mamelodi Sundowns courtesy of a 2-1 win in Morocco last weekend.

It will be the second Champions League final between Esperance and Wydad with the Tunisians winning 1-0 on aggregate in 2011.

The final will take place on 24/25 May and 31 May/1 June with 2017 champions Wydad hosting first leg.
