Caf Champions League and Confederation Cup quarter-finalists will know their opponents when the draw will be conducted at 5pm GMT on Monday.

For the Champions League, all teams that finished as runners-up in their respective groups Esperance, ES Setif, Horoya and Primeiro Agosto will be placed in Pot 1.

Each group winner will be in their own pot of three balls, with Al Ahly in Pot 2, TP Mazembe in Pot 3, Wydad Casablanca in Pot 4, while Etoile du Sahel will be in Pot 5.

A ball would be picked from Pot 1 which contains the runners-up. Then the team chosen will be revealed.

Balls would then be picked from other pots that have teams that were not in the same group as the revealed team from Pot 1 and placed in the empty Pot 6 where they are mixed.

The ball picked from Pot 6 will contain the team that will face the one from Pot 1 for Quarter-final 1.

A repeat of the same process will be done three more times to come up with pairings for Quarter-finals 2, 3 and 4.

The runners-up will play first leg matches at home as per regulations.

As for the Confederation Cup, a similar process as the Champions League is followed.

Pot 1 will contain runners-ups AS Vita, Al Masry, CARA Brazzaville and Rayon Sports.

Group winners Raja Casablanca will be in Pot 2 with three balls, RSB Berkane in Pot 3 while Enyimba in Pot 4 and USM Alger in Pot 5.

A team picked from Pot 1 will be revealed before picking balls from pots that have teams that were not in the same group as the revealed side and placed in Pot 6.

After the mixing of balls in Pot 6, a picked team will be paired with the side from Pot 1 for Quarter-final 1.

The same process will be repeated three more times to determine 2, 3 and 4.

Just as in the Champions League, the runners-up will play the quarter-finals first legs at home.
