The Kenyan champions will come up against the Algerian side seeking to advance to the Group Stage for the first time in history

Gor Mahia will take on Union sportive de la médina d'Alger (USM Alger) in the second round of qualifying for the Caf Champions League.

According to the Caf draw, the Kenyan champions will come up against the Algerian side, who beat AS SONIDEP FC of Niger 5-2 on aggregate to advance on Sunday.

K’Ogalo, who eliminated Aigle Noir of Burundi after a 5-1 beating at Kasarani, will play the first leg away from September 13-15, before hosting the Algerian side in Kenya from September 27-29 in the return leg.

Gor Mahia met USM Alger in the Group Stage of the Caf Confederation Cup last season, with the Kenyan side managing a 0-0 draw at home before losing the return leg played at Stade du 5 Juillet Stadium 2-1.

Gor Mahia are seeking to make it to the Group Stage of the Caf Champions League for the first time in their history.

Last season, they failed to make it past the second round of qualifying after losing to Lobi Stars of Nigeria on the away goal rule after the two-legged tie ended 3-3 on aggregate.
