The Kenyan champions will play the first leg, scheduled for April 7, at home with the return fixture planned for a week later

Gor Mahia will face Moroccan side RS Berkane in the Caf Confederation Cup quarter-final stage.

The Moroccan side finished top of Group A after collecting eleven points, while the Kenyan side finished second in Group D with nine points. While K’Ogalo has been appearing in continental stage, the North African side is making their debut after winning the Moroccan Throne Cup last year.

The Kenyan champions made history by reaching the last eight of the same competition and will be aiming to better the performance.

However, they will have to get a good result at home to avoid a heartbreaking away defeat, in order to advance.

Zambian outfit Nkana will take on CS Sfaxien of Tunisia, with Egyptian giants Zamalek landing North African side Hassania Agadir.

Another Tunisian side Etoile du Sahel will face Al Hilal Club from Sudan.

Nkana FC will have a tall order against CS Sfaxien, who finished their Group B matches unbeaten and have won the competition four times and finished as runners-up once.

Zamalek who struggled in Group D, where they bounced from a slow start to finish top with nine points, will come up against a Hassania Agadir side, that defied all the odds to finish second behind Group A winners’ RS Berkane.

In the other match, Etoile du Saleh will also face a tricky opponent in Al Hilal of Sudan, who finished top of Group C, that had Nkana, Asante Kotoko and Zesco United, after managing three wins, two draws, and one defeat.
