In the draw that was conducted in Cairo, Egypt on Monday, Rangers are in Group B with the Tunisian giants as well as relatively unknown Burkinabe club Salitas FC.
Rangers will open their CAF Confederation Cup group stage campaign against Sallitas of Burkina Faso in the weekend of Feb 1-3 at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium.
