CAIRO – 21 March 2018: CAF Confederation Cup draw held on Wednesday in Cairo, Egypt, put Al-Masry against Gabon’s Mounana at CAF Confederation Cup round of 32.

In the second half, Abdallah El-Said added two goals to secure Al-Ahly’s victory.
Al-Ahly repeated their victory in the second leg in Gabon. Al-Ahly won the game 3-1 thanks to Mido Gaber, Walid Azarro and Walid Soliman goals.
Mounana’s loss at CAF Champions League’s first round sent them to CAF Confederation Cup’s round of 32.
“There are no easy teams at the competitions but we wanted to face Mounana after their loss to Al-Ahly,” Al-Masry’s vice president, Mohamed El Kholy, told press after the draw.
Al-Masry qualified to CAF Confederation Cup round of 32 after they eliminated Tanzania’s Simba as they ended the first leg in Tanzania with a 2-2 draw while the second leg ended with a goalless draw. Al-Masry qualified thanks to the away goals rule.
