Egyptian clubs’ continental programme

CAF Club Competitions

Egyptian opponents for the first round of the and CAF Confederations Cup are now known after the completion of the preliminaries this past weekend.

CAF Champions League

Enyimba vs Smouha

APR vs Al Ahly

Smouha will fancy their chances despite taking on Nigerian powerhouse Enyimba who easily dispatched Benin side Buffles du Borgou 4-0. On the contrary, Smouha needed penalties to beat Al-Ahli Tripoli in their maiden continental excursion.

On the other hand, Ahly will return to their favourite hunting ground; East Africa, against Rwandese military side APR. But they’ll be careful to avoid complacency against the CECAFA Club Cup runners-up as Yanga, from Tanzania, showed last year.

Djoliba vs Petrojet

Zamalek vs Rayon Sport

Petrojet will face arguably the sternest test among Egyptian teams as they are pit against seasoned continental campaigners, Djoliba, from Mali. The Malians receiving a bye in the preliminaries is a testament of their abilities.

Finding themselves in unfamiliar waters, Africa’s 2nd tier club competition, Zamalek will look to make easy of Rayon Sports from Rwanda.

The first legs will be played on the weekend of March 13-15th while the return legs take place in April between the 3-5th.

I have dedicated part of my time in this bad world to following African football. From CECAFA to WAFU, COSAFA to UNAF & even the forgotten UNIFFAC.
