The 2012 CAF Champions League group stage matches took place between July and September 2012.[1] The matchdays were 6–8 July, 20–22 July, 3–5 August, 17–19 August, 31 August–2 September, and 14–16 September.[2]

The group stage featured the eight winners from the second round. They were divided into two groups of four, where they played each other home-and-away in a round-robin format. The top two teams in each group advanced to the semifinals.[3]

Seeding[edit]

The draw for the group stage was held on 15 May 2012, 14:00 UTC+02:00, at the CAF Headquarters in Cairo.[4] The eight teams were seeded into four pots (using their individual 2007–2011 5-Year team Ranking).[5] Each group contained one team from each pot.[6]
