Pitso Mosimane’s Al Ahly will face Qatari champions Al Duhail in the second round of the Club World Cup, with the possibility of playing Bayern Munich in the semi-finals on the cards after the draw was concluded on Tuesday afternoon.
The tournament is set to take place between 1 and 11 February in Qatar and, after Auckland City in New Zealand withdrew from the competition due to Covid-19, Al Duhail got a bye straight through to the second round along with three other teams.
Mosimane’s Ahly will represent Caf after winning the Champions League a few months ago, while Uefa will be represented by Bayern Munich, Ulsan Hyundai will represent the AFC with Concacaf champions Tigres UANL also joining the mix.
The draw, which took place at Fifa’s headquarters in Zurich, Switzerland, pitted Ahly against the Qatari champions Al Duhail in the second round of the Club World Cup where a spot in the semi-finals, potentially against Bayern Munich, lie in wait for the winner.
