Pyramids progressed to the last four after defeating Zambian giants Zanaco 3-1 on aggregate in a quarter-final tie in March 2020.


The Egyptian side claimed an impressive 3-0 win in the first-leg encounter in Zambia, but they succumbed to a 1-0 defeat in the return leg in Cairo.


Prior to the defeat to Zanaco, Pyramids were undefeated in two Confederation Cup matches having recorded two consecutive wins.

The Guinean giants were held to a 1-1 draw by Enyimba in the first-leg match in Nigeria, but they managed to secure a 2-0 in the second-leg match at home.


As a result, Horoya are undefeated in their last 10 matches in the Confederation Cup having recorded three draws and seven victories.


The winner between Pyramids and Horiya will face either RS Berkane and Hassania Agadir (both from Morocco) in the final.


The final is set to be played at the Prince Moulay Abdellah Stadium in the capital city of Morocco, Rabat on October 25.
