PREMIERSHIP champions Dynamos are ranked 19th in the top 30 best teams on the continent, according to the Confederation of African Football (Caf).

The list released Friday shows that Dynamos, who have won the last four domestic league titles and taken part in the Caf Champions League three times under then coach Calisto Pasuwa, have 494 points.

Under Pasuwa, Dynamos failed to reach the money-spinning group phase of the Champions League and decided not to take part in the 2015 edition due to financial challenges.

Top of the list are Egyptian giants Al Ahly with 2 106 points, followed by Esperance of Tunisia with 1 503 points.

Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) giants TP Mazembe, who are home to former FC Platinum striker Ali Sadiki, are third, while their counterparts AS Vita are 15th.

South African giants Orlando Pirates complete the list of teams from Southern Africa, perched on 22nd place.
