The Confederation of African Football will hold the knockout stages draw ceremony for the 2018 edition of the Caf second-tier club competition at its headquarters in Egypt.

The draws will feature representatives of the eight teams that qualified for the last eight of the continent’s club tournament that emerged the winners and runners-up from the group stage.

It is the first time the Nigerian giants are reaching this stage of the competition since making their debut campaign in 2010 when they were bounced out in the Round of 16.

Abdullah’s side will be hoping for a fair draw as they aim to return to their glory days, securing their first African title since 2004 when they won the Caf Champions League title on the bounce.
