Moroccan side Raja Casablanca will take on South Africa’s Orlando Pirates in the quarter-finals of CAF Confederation Cup.

The draw was conducted at the CAF headquarters in Cairo, Egypt on Friday afternoon.

The South Africans finished runners-up in Group A after a last-minute defeat to Nigerian giants Enyimba in Aba on Wednesday evening.

The defeat meant that they would be pitted against group winners of the remaining three groups.

Raja Casablanca topped their group after winning six of their six group stage games, scoring 13 goals whilst conceding none and are favorites to win the title they lifted back in 2018.

Cameroon side Coton Sport will take on ASC Jaraaf from Senegal, while JS Kabylie from Algeria will take on CS Sfaxien from Tunisia.

Egyptian side Pyramids will battle against Nigerian side Enyimba in the other quarter final fixture.

The first-leg of the semi-final will take place on 16 May where the group runners up host first – while the return leg will be played on 23 May.
