Ahly will face Ivory Coast's Sewe Sport in the second leg of the Confederation Cup final on Saturday, 6 December, read a statement on the club's official website on Sunday.

It is not determined though where the match would take place, with Egypt's interior ministry yet to respond to Ahly's request to hold the match at the 74,100-seat Cairo Stadium.

Ahly reached the final at the expense of Coton Sport of Cameroon after winning 3-1 on aggregate, while Sewe Sport beat FC Leopards of Congo 1-0 on aggregate in the last-four tie.

The first leg will be played on 29 November in Abidjan.

Ahly, the record holders of the elite African Champions League with eight titles under their belt, are seeking to become the first Egyptian side to win the continent's secondary club competition.
