Premier Soccer League (PSL) clubs have discovered their opponents in the 2018/19 Caf inter-club competitions.

Kazer Chiefs, Free State Stars, Mamelodi Sundowns and Orlando Pirates are the four clubs which will represent South Africa in the two continental tournaments.

Sundowns, who are the defending PSL champions, will lock horns with Equatorial Guinea's Leones Vegatarianos in the Caf Champions League preliminary rounds.

The winner on aggregate between the two teams will take on either FC Nouadibhou of Mauritania or Libyan club Ahli Benghazi in the play-off rounds. 

Last season's PSL runners-up, Pirates, are scheduled to face Light Stars of Seychelles in the Champions League preliminary rounds. 

The Buccaneers will then face either Volcan do Moroni of Comoros or Namibian outfit African Stars in the play-off round provided they overcome Light Stars on aggregate. 

Amakhosi, who finished third on the PSL standings last season, have been pitted against Zimamoto of Zanzibar in the Caf Confederation Cup preliminary rounds.

The winner between the two teams will face either El Geco of Madagascar or Equatorial Guinea's Deportivo Unidad in the next round.
