Pirates were drawn in a tricky Group A alongside Libya’s Al Ahli Benghazi, Enyimba of Nigeria and Algerian outfit ES Setif.

According to Egyptian website KingFut, Setif’s general director Jihad Boulahdjilet has written to CAF suggesting that the Algerians play their game against Pirates on 10 March in Egypt, since the team will face Al Ahli Benghazi a week later in the same country.

“In case our suggestion [to play in Egypt] was rejected we have put Mali as a second option. If it was also turned down, we will have to look for another country,” Boulahdjilet was quoted by the website.

It now remains to be seen whether Josef Zinnbauer’s side will face Setif in Egypt or Mali – or in another country altogether, while the Buccaneers are set to host Nigeria’s Enyimba seven days later at the Orlando Stadium.
