Cup holders Zamalek are set to face Ittihad El-Shorta while runners-up Al Ahly are to face Haras El-Hodood.
Only two teams that aren’t in the Egyptian Premier League have reached this stage of the oldest Egyptian football competition, FC Masr and El-Merriekh are set to face each other in the round of 16.

If Al Ahly qualified to the round of 8, they will face the winner from the Smouha vs Entag El-Harby game. Zamalek will play against either Ittihad of Alexandria or Petrojet, in case the Whites qualified to the next round.
The only chance of the Cairo Derby occurring is in the final of the competition if both teams make it there. Al Ahly will want to win the cup for the 36th time , a record, as they haven’t won it since 2007. While Zamalek will want to win it for the fourth straight time.
