Following the elimination of Al Nassr, Libya's last surviving participants in the first round of the Confederation of African Football's second tier club competition, the Confederation Cup two weeks ago, Libyan football supporters' interest in the CAF competitions is on the various interesting clashes expected in the last 16 stage of Champions League and the Confederation Cup with the first leg ties this weekend.
Most certainly, most will be following the ties in the Champions League and particularly the clashes involving clubs from our North African neighbours, Tunisia, Egypt and Algeria, with all three, having a large stake in Africa's premier club competition. All three still have two teams among the last 16 stage.
Most focus will probably be directed to the match in Tunisia on Sunday where CA Bizertin, who narrowly eliminated Libya's Al Ittihad by the odd goal in the preliminary round, hosting defending champions Al Ahly from the Egyptian capital, Cairo.
Zamalek are Egypt's other participants as they host Ethiopia's Kedus Giorgis, while other Tunisian club still in the competition is Esperance, seasoned campaigners in CF competitions, who travel to Algeria to be entertained by JSM Bejaïa.
ES Sétif are the other Algeria representatives. They are in the Congo for a clash with AC Leopards.
Egypt and Tunisia are also well represented in the last 16 stage of the Confederation Cup, where another North African nation also can ride itself of having to representatives, Morocco, who bank a lot on the team that eliminated Libya's Al Nassr in the previous round, FAR Rabat, who travel to Tanzania to meet Azzam United.
Morocco's other representatives are Wydad, who also play their first leg away in Mozambique to face Liga Muculmana Maputo.
When it comes to Egypt, their hopes in this competition rest on Enppi and Ismaily. Both have home ties on Saturday with Enppi hosting South Africa's Supersport and Ismaily entertaining Sudan's Ahly Shandy.
Two of Tunisia's top clubs SC Sfaxien and E Sahel start the stage with a home match for Sfaxien against Congo's Diables Noirs, while Sahel travel to Angola to meet Recreativo da Caala.
