Egyptian giants Zamalek are paired against Moroccan champions Ittihad Tanger in the third round of the competition, following Friday’s draw in Cairo.

The Cairo-based outfit, are eyeing their first Confederation Cup title.

The double-header is for a place in the group stage of Africa’s secondary club competition.

The Morrocan side was eliminated from the African Champions League’s first round after losing to Algeria’s JS Saoura 2-1 on aggregate.

Zamalek, on the other hand, secured a comprehensive 7-2 aggregate win over Chad’s CotonTchad to advance to the Confederation Cup third round.

The White Knights are the only Egyptian representative left in the competition after Masry were eliminated following a 2-0 aggregate defeat by Burkina Faso’s Salitas earlier this month.

Ahly, Zamalek’s Cairo rivals, are the only Egyptian side to win the Confederation Cup, having lifted the trophy in 2014.
