Egyptian side Masry have all but sealed their place in the CAF Confederation Cup group stage after crushing Cote d'or 4-0 in Seychelles in the first leg of the competition's playoff round on Sunday.
Ahmed Yasser opened the scoring as early as the sixth minute, volleying home from a tight angle after a cross was floated to the far post.
Palestinian striker Mahmoud Wadi doubled the lead in the 14th minute with a far-post header following a free kick before Masry scored twice in stoppage time to complete an impressive victory.
Nigerian Austin Amutu was on target with an easy tap-in into an empty net and striker Ahmed Gomaa added the fourth with a superb overhead kick.
Masry will have an easy mission when they host Cote d'or in the second leg in Port Said.
Cote d'or's misery was compounded by the Masry loss, having earlier suffered a humiliating 16-1 aggregate defeat by South Africa's Mamelodi Sundowns in the African Champions League preliminary round.
