PSL Duo To Face African Giants In CAF Confederation Cup

SuperSport United and Platinum Stars now know who stands between them and a spot in the knockout stages of the CAF Confederation Cup.
 
 
The two Absa Premiership sides made it past Barrack Young Controllers and AS Tanda respectively in the last round of the competition, with Matsatsantsa securing a 6-1 aggregate victory and Dikwena needing penalties to progress.
 
Now, with both clubs looking to put on a performance on the continent after guaranteeing themselves at least $275,000 (R3.6m) in CAF prize money, they face a tough task ahead if they’re going to make it into the last eight. 
 
 
SuperSport were drawn against Horoya AC, CF Mounana and TP Mazembe in group D at today’s draw in Cairo, meaning trips to Guinea, Gabon and the Democratic Republic of Congo over the next few months, while Stars are off to Algeria, Swaziland and Tunisia to face MC Alger, Mbabane Swallows and CS Sfaxien.
 
This is the first time that CAF have had four groups in this stage of the tournament after a reshuffling of the format and Mamelodi Sundowns are also in the last 16 of the CAF Champions League as they look to defend the title that they won last year.
 
The full CAF Confederation Cup Draw:
 
Group A:
FUS Rabat
Club Africain
Rivers United
Kampala City
 
Group B:
CSS
Platinum Stars
MC Alger
Mbabane Swallows
 
Group C:

The group stage will get underway on the second weekend of May.
