Unless the rules of this draw have changed. While five seeded were thinking of receiving in the return leg, it turns out that this will not be the case. In a statement, CAF (Confederation of African Football) reveals that “there will be a draw for each match to determine which team plays the host the first”.
The draw for the play-offs will take place on September 16 in Cairo, Egypt.
Seeded: Côte d’Ivoire, Ghana, Algeria, Nigeria and Cape Verde
Pool 2: Cameroon, Egypt, Senegal, Burkina Faso and Ethiopia
