Esperance will face Algerian champions CS Constantine in the quarterfinals‚ while Horoya‚ who vanquished Orlando Pirates in the last round of group at the weekend‚ face an uphill battle against 2017 champions Wydad.
The last quarterfinal is perhaps easier to call as Tanzanian side Simba‚ at this stage of the tournament for the first time‚ take on Mazembe and will be massive underdogs.
Sundowns will be at home in the first leg on the weekend of April 5-6 before travelling away to Cairo a week later for the return fixture.
