Egyptian club Maqassa have been drawn to play against Ahli Tripoli of Libya in the CAF Confederation Cup 2nd 1/8th Final.

The Confederation of African Football (CAF) held the draw Thursday in their headquarters in Cairo, Egypt.

The draw paired eight surviving clubs from the previous stage of the Cup, with eight others eliminated from the CAF Champions League round of 16.

The eight surviving clubs from the Confederation Cup are Esperance (Tunisia), Stade Gabesien (Tunisia), FUS Rabat (Morocco), Misr Maqassa (Egypt), Esperanca (Angola), CF Mounana (Gabon), Kawkab (Morocco) and Medeama (Ghana).

The eight losers from the round of 16 of the CAF Champions League are TP Mazembe (DR Congo), Etoile du Sahel (Tunisia), El Merreikh (Sudan), Stade Malien (Mali), MO Bejaia (Algeria), Ahli Tripoli (Libya), Mamelodi Sundowns (South Africa) and Young Africans (Tanzania).

The first-leg will be played between 6 and 8 May, while the second will be scheduled for either 17 or 18 May. The surviving clubs from the Cup will play the second leg at home.

The only Egyptian representative to survive in the secondary continental competition, Maqassa needed a late goal from Mohamed Gaber to eliminate Algeria's Club Sportif Constantine Wednesday.

Their fellow Egyptians ENPPI waved goodbye to the competition after a penalty shootout loss by Gabon's Mounana.
