Egyptian side Masry, who reached the semi-finals last season, are on the brink of waving goodbye to the CAF Confederation Cu at the first hurdle after suffering a shock 2-0 home loss by Burkina Faso's Salitas on Saturday.
Masry fell behind after 32 minutes when Salitas' Cedrik Badolo capitalized on some sloppy defending to run half of the length of the pitch unopposed and beat the keeper with a deflected shot.
Salitas went 2-0 up in the 72nd minute to rub salt into Masry's wounds, thanks to a brilliant overhead kick from Ismael Karambiri.
Masry will face an uphill climb to overturn the deficit when they meet Salitas in the second leg in Ouagadougou next week.
The club have been on a downward slide since coach Hossam Hassan left them to take charge of fellow Egyptian side Pyramids FC in October.
They slipped to the 12th spot in the Egyptian Premier League after a poor run of results.
