Egyptian team Arab Contractors were eliminated from the Confederation Cup’s 32nd round after losing 2-1 to Tunisian side Etoile du Sahel in Sousse on Wednesday.

The Egyptian side were held to a goalless draw in the first-leg in Cairo, two weeks earlier.

Former Ahly Striker Souleymane Coulibaly, who currently plays for Etoile, scored twice, helping his team earn a difficult qualification for the next round.

The Ivorian striker opened the scoring for the hosts in the 22nd minute with a nice header, while Arab Contractors' Seifeddine Jaziri leveled the score seven minutes after the break.

Coulibaly scored once more in a late penalty, with two minutes remaining, lifting his side to the next round.

On Tuesday, Egyptian team FC Pyramids reached the second round of the Confederation Cup’s 32nd round at the expense of Libyan side Al-Ittihad Tripoli, to be Egypt's sole representative in the continental competition.
