The final seat in the group stage is still puzzled between Senegalese Foot and Senegal's Zamalek, after the African Football Confederation (CAF) decided on Tuesday to return the return leg in the round of 32 between the two teams, to be held on 24 October in Cairo.
Geniracion had refused to go to the Borg El Arab stadium for the return leg, which was scheduled for September 29, because of the transfer of the meeting from PetroSport to Borg Al Arab and postponed for 24 hours without convincing reasons, according to the officials of the Senegalese club.
The referee decided to calculate the result Zamalek 3-0 win and qualify for the group stage, before the suspension of the rise of the Egyptian team, and issued its competitions committee decision to re-play the second leg, note that the Senegalese team won 2-1 at home.
