Al Masry will take on AS Vita Club in the 2018 CAF Confederation Cup encounter on Wednesday.

Kick-off is at 21h00 CAT.

The semi-final first-leg match is set to take place at the Al Masry Club Stadium in the Egyptian city of Port Said.

The Egyptian Premier League side booked their place in the semi-finals after defeating Algerian club USM Alger 2-0 on aggregate.

Al Masry scored once both home and away in the quarter-final tie as they showed their dominance over their fellow North African side.

Palestine national team striker Mahmoud Wadi scored both goals for the Green Eagles.

The towering centre forward will be keen to inspire Al Masry to victory both home and away.

Al Masry will be making their third appearance in the CAF semi-finals.

Meanwhile, Vita Club reached the semi-finals after overcoming Moroccan side RS Berkane 4-2 on aggregate.

The DR Congolese Super League champions scored three times at home in the first-leg clash, before netting once away in the return leg.

Jean-Marc Makusu Mundele (brace) Djuma Shabani and Fabrice Ngoma all netted for the Black Dolphins.

DR Congolese striker Mundele will be hoping to score in the semi-final tie and help his side advance to the final.

Vita Club won the 1973 CAF Champions League title, but they have never clinched the CAF Confederation Cup, CAF Cup Winners and CAF Cup.

Gambian match referee Bakary Gassama will officiate the game between Al Masry and Vita Club on Wednesday.
