AS Kigali: KCCA FC Slayer Learn CAF Confederation Cup Opponent

AS Kigali have learnt their opponent after the CAF Confederation Cup draw was held on Friday.

The Rwandan club knocked out KCCA FC on away goals rule – AS Kigali were awarded a 2-0 win when KCCA FC failed to raise at least 15 players in the first leg after their camp were hit by Covid19.

KCCA won the second leg 3-1 at Kitende to draw 3-3 on aggregate but lost the game on away goals rule and hence bow out.

AS Kigali have been drawn against Tunisian side CS Sfaxien.

The draw was conducted by CAF Head of competitions Khlaed Nassar, assisted by Egypt’s legend Hossam Ghaly.

The Play-off (2nd Preliminary) round paired sides from the preliminary round to those relegated from the same round of the Total CAF CL, with a place in the group stage at stake.

Following the withdrawal of Gazelle FC (Chad) from the Total CAF Champions League 2020/21, only 15 clubs have joined the Total CAF Confederation Cup 2020/21’s playoff round.

Meaning, there were 15 teams from CL and 16 teams from CC, to strike a balance, the highest ranked team at Confederation Cup automatically qualified to Group Stages.

RS Berkane have hence qualified to the groups.

The first leg will be held on February 14, 2021 while the return leg will be played on February 21, 2021.
