Orlando Pirates will face little-known AS Kaloum of Guinea in their bid to qualify for the CAF Confederation Cup group stage.
This followed the draw for the play-off round of the second-tier continental competition in Cairo, Egypt, today.
The Buccaneers thrashed CF Mounana 3-0 in Soweto on Saturday for a 5-2 aggregate win over the Gabonese outfit in the second round to close in on a journey to the group stage of the tournament.
If they overcome Kaloum over the two legs in the play-offs – to be played on the weekends of
May 15-17 and June 5-7 – Pirates are likely to face familiar foes from the north and west Africa in the group phase.
This include Zamalek from Egypt, CS Sfaxien (Tunisia), Asec Mimosas (Cote d’Ivoire) and AC Leopards (Congo-Brazzaville).
Pirates have faced all these sides in continental competition before but their potential meeting in the group stage will only be determined if all these sides progress.
