Al Masry will face Gabon’s Mounana in Confederation Cup round of 32

Egyptian side Masry were handed a favourable draw in the Confederation Cup round of 32 after they were paired with Gabon’s C.F. Mounana on Wednesday.

The draw, which took place at the luxurious Ritz-Carlton hotel in Cairo, pitted an ambitious Masry side against the club that were eliminated from the African Champions League at the hands of Egyptian giants Ahly.

Mounana were hammered 7-1 on aggregate but will have a chance to make amends in the less illustrious Confederation Cup, Africa’s secondary club competition.

Masry reached the round of 32 at the expense of Tanzanian side Simba on the away goal rule following a 2-2 aggregate draw.

They played out an exciting 2-2 draw in Dar Assalam before settling for a goalless stalemate at home in the second leg to advance.

The first leg will be held in Libreville on 6, 7 or 8 April while the return will take place in Port Said on 17-18 April.

Masry are eyeing the first African triumph in their 98-year history.
