The winner of this clash will go on to face the victor of the TP Mazembe (DR Congo) vs Petro de Luanda (Angola) encounter in the semi-finals.

In other matches from the draw, Tunisian giants Espérance de Tunis will meet ASEC Mimosas (Côte d'Ivoire), while South Africa's Mamelodi Sundowns will face Young Africans (Tanzania).

During the inaugural edition of the African Super League last October, Ahly failed to beat Simba, drawing twice against the Tanzanian side. However, Ahly advanced to the next round based on the away goal rule.
