African governing body CAF has set the dates for the clashes of Cairo duo Ahly and Zamalek in Confederation Cup semi finals.

Defending champions Ahly play the first leg away to Orlando Pirates on 26 September before hosting the South African side on 4 October in the return.

Zamalek, Ahly's bitter rivals, visit Tunisia's Etoile Sahel on 27 September and will host them in the second leg on 3 October.

Should both sides advance, they will face off in their first ever meeting in Africa's secondary club competition as they normally clash in the elite Champions League.
