Egyptian giants Zamalek, who are eyeing their first Confederation Cup title, will face Moroccan champions Ittihad Tanger in the third round of the competition after the draw was made in Cairo on Friday.

Both sides will meet in a two-legged tie for a place in the group stage of Africa's secondary club competition.

Tanger were eliminated from the African Champions League's first round after losing to Algeria's JS Saoura 2-1 on aggregate.

Zamalek, on the other hand, secured a comprehensive 7-2 aggregate win over Chad's CotonTchad to advance to the Confederation Cup third round.

The White Knights are the only Egyptian representative left in the competition after Masry were eliminated following a 2-0 aggregate defeat by Burkina Faso's Salitas earlier this month.

Ahly, Zamalek's Cairo rivals, are the only Egyptian side to win the Confederation Cup, having lifted the trophy in 2014.
