According to CAF, the first leg fixtures of the play-off will be played on April 18, 19 and 20.
Nigeria’s sole surviving flag bearer in the CAF Confederation Cup, Bayelsa United, have been drawn to face Ivorian club Sewe Sport at the play-offs.
To make it to this stage of the competition, Bayelsa United edged out Zimbabwean side, How Mine, on a 3-2 aggregate score line. It was, however, not the same for Nigeria’s other representative, Warri Wolves, who were knocked out by CA Bizertin of Tunisia.
According to the schedule by CAF, Bayelsa United will play the first leg away from home while they will have the second leg a week later in Sapele.
In some other pairings from Tuesday’s draw conducted in Cairo, Egypt, Al-Ahly have been drawn against fellow Arab side, Jedida of Morocco.
Also Kazier Chiefs will be battling for a place in the group phase against tough Ivorian club side, Asec Mimosas, while it will be an all Malian affair between AS Real Bamako and Djoliba.
According to CAF, the first leg fixtures of the play-off of the Confederations Cup will be played on April 18, 19 and 20 while second leg games come on April 25, 26 and 27.
No Nigerian club has won the CAF Confederation Cup as currently being played, the best attempt was, coincidentally, from Bayelsa United who got as far as the semis in 2009 and will now be looking to better that outing this year.
