Three-time African champions Canon Yaounde have crashed out of the Champions League after losing on penalties to Angola's Primeiro Agosto.

The Angolans won Monday's second round second leg game in Cameroon 1-0, to make it 1-1 on aggregate before eventually winning 5-4 after a penalty shoot out.

Malian club Djoliba lost 1-0 at home to Club Africain of Tunisia but still progressed to the third round of the Champions League.

Nigerian Ezenwa Otorogu scored in the 65th minute for Club Africain, but the tie ended 2-2 on aggregate, with Djoliba winning on away goals.

Asec Mimosas of Ivory Coast cruised through 3-0 on aggregate, after winning their second round, second-leg match away to Burkina Faso's Etoile Filante 1-0.

Ajax Cape Town became the second South African side to crash out of the Champions League after losing to Monomotapa of Zimbabwe.

The Zimbabwean champions won the second leg of the second round tie 2-1 on Sunday in Harare to make it 4-4 on aggregate.

Monomotapa advance on the away goals rule after losing 3-2 in South Africa three weeks ago.

The hosts' captain Mtulisi Maphosa broke the deadlock after 14 minutes with a header in front of a crowd of only 3,000.

Nazier Allie almost equalised within 60 seconds at the 35,000-capacity Rufaro Stadium, but his effort was thwarted by a superb save from goalkeeper Godfrey Mangove.

Ajax levelled on 28 minutes through Granwald Scott only for Charles Chiutsa to put Monomotapa back in front six minutes before half-time when he flicked in a Daniel Zokoto pass.

The result means there is no South African club in the third round of the Champions League, after SuperSport United lost 3-2 on aggregate to Uganda's KCC on Saturday.

Also on Sunday, two-time African Champions Asante Kotoko of Ghana were knocked out by Morocco's Al Ittihad Khemisset on the away goals rule.

The Moroccans won the second leg 2-0 at home to make the score 3-3 on aggregate.

Sudanese club Al Hilal went through despite losing 2-1 away in Reunion to Stade Tamponnaise.

Gael Payet scored twice with Haitham Mostafa's goal putting Al Hilal through 4-3 on aggregate.

Third round draw:

Primeiro Agosto (ANG) v Al Hilal (SUD)
Kano Pillars (NGR) v Al Ahly (EGY)
Djoliba (MLI) v ZESCO Utd (ZAM)
KCC (UGA) v Al Merreikh (SUD)
