Kenya Premier League (KPL) Champions Gor Mahia has landed Nyasa Bullets in the Confederation of Africa Football (CAF) champions league in the preliminary rounds.
Fresh from losing 4-0 to Everton in a friendly match, Gor Mahia will chasing to feature in the group stages of the 2018/2019 season against the Malawian champions.
The 17th time KPL champions will host the opening match at the Moi International Sports Centre, Kasarani on November 24 or 25 ahead of the return leg set for Kamuzu Stadium in Blantyre, Malawi a week later.
A win over Bullets will guarantee the Kenyan champions a more tricky assignment against Cameroon’s USM de Loum or Nigeria’s Lobi Stars in the first round.
In a related development, debutants Kariobangi Sharks have been handed a relatively easier assignment on paper in the Caf Confederation Cup.
The FKF SportPesa Shield holders will face Djibouti’s Arta Solar 7 in the continent’s second-tier club competition. A win for Sharks could pit them against seasoned Ghanaian side Asante Kotoko in the subsequent phase of the competition.
