Confederation Cup debutants Maqassa finished their first-leg of the tournament's playoff round with a scoreless draw at Ahli Tripoli in Tunis on Friday.

Having defeated Algeria's CS Costantine 3-2 on aggregate in the second round, Maqassa were destined to meet the Champions League-eliminated Libyans at Stade Chedly-Zouiten to vie for a group-stage berth.

A goalless draw was not deemed the worst of results for Maqassa, who qualified for Africa's second-tier competition after finishing fourth in the league last season.

The Fayoum-based side are currently eighth in the Egyptian league table with 39 points, five adrift of the Confederation Cup qualifying third spot. Maqassa will face Ahly at home on 17 May during the second leg of the tournament.

Fellow Egyptians ENPPI bowed out of the competition the previous round after losing to Gabon's Mounana on penalties.
