That's one shitty list of teams. Even the Tunisian and Algerian participants are no-namers.

With the introduction of the Arab CL, North African teams would rather participate in that over the Confed Cup but there's better teams in the second round who got byes: CS Sfax, MC Alger, ENNPI, etc.

2 questions.

1. Is this like the European UEFA Cup?
2. What's this Arab CL?

Yes its just like the UEFA Cup. Its meant for smaller clubs and in fact the teams that lose in the 3rd round of the African CL continue to play in the Confed Cup. As for the Arab CL, its a Champions League for Arab teams with a lot of money to be won (more than the African CL i think) and everything is paid for (travel, etc.). Last year it was won by RAJA Casablanca (Morocco) and the year before by CS Sfax (Tunisia). This year edition, they're at the group stage with just 3 teams from Africa still playing (out of 8): Zamalek (Egypt), ES Setif and CA Bordj Bou Arreridj (both Algeria). There's a topic about it in the Arabian Football section.

Caf reschedules Confed Cup tie

Caf has rescheduled the second leg of the Confederation Cup clash between Nigeria's Kwara United and Cameroonian side Union Douala.

Kwara United were scheduled to host the third round game on 22 April but has been rearranged because Nigeria's presidential elections will be held on that day.

The match in Ilorin has been brought forward and it will now be played on 18 April.

The Nigerians wanted the game to be postponed for a week but Caf turned down their request.

The two sides played to a 1-1 in the first leg played in Douala last week.

MC Algiers players get Caf ban

Five players and club president of MC Algiers of Algeria have been banned by the Confederation of African Football (Caf) for violent conduct.

The Algiers side were also fined US$20,000 after their players physically and verbally attacked the referee during last month's 3-0 defeat away to Kwara United of Nigeria in the Confederation Cup.

Goalkeeper Abdouni Merouane, who was sent off during the first-leg tie, received a three-year ban while defender Bouacida Kamel was banned for 18 months.

Chaoui Ismaiel, Hadjadi Fodil and Babouche Reda will be suspended for the next two matches organised by Caf.

Club president Adnan Khaled was also banned from attending Caf competititons for six months after invading the pitch and threatening the referee.

MC Algiers have been given three days to appeal the decision.

do you have any link to any reliable and neutral source stating that the ref of that game was bought?

Your asking for the impossible. Obviously a ref that was "bought" wont go around saying he was to the media! Im not saying that particular ref was bought but I wouldnt be surprised at all.

The game was not televised or anything. An Algerian journalist was interviewed on the radio as soon as the game finished and he reported that the ref was completely one-sided, dishing out yellow and red cards for the MCA players, and not whistling clear off-sides. Of course this might be inaccurate but I dont see why a journalist would do such a thing. Other than that, I have no proof.

I don't think that assumptions and reports made by a journalist of the losing team's country are very trustworthy. Biased refs in favour of the home teams exist everywhere and it's not just an "African thing".

In any case as much biased as this ref was, or even if he was bought, there is no excuse for assaulting the ref so I think CAF did very well in punishing them.

Dont get me wrong, I fully agree with the punishment CAF gave out. What I dont agree with is the circumstances that led to the players reacting this way. The goalkeeper was given a straight red card for kicking the ball out of his net after the Nigerians scored the 3rd goal, a defender was given a straight red on a foul that did not even merit a yellow card and finally, an MCA midfielder got a yellow after he got fouled ... I forgot to mention though that the journalist did state that the keeper Abdouni would be in trouble because he threw a chair at the game commissioner as he was leaving the field, totally unacceptable behaviour.

Two home games for Kwara and two very questionable refs and unfortunately two attacks but it does the raise question ...

Referee attacked in Confed Cup tie

Gambia referee John Mendy was physically attacked by angry players from Cameroon's Union Douala during a Confederation Cup game on Wednesday.

Mendy was hit by unidentified players after handing Nigeria's Kwara United a last minute penalty which saw Union Douala knocked out of the competition.

The Cameroonians lost the second leg of the third round game 3-2 in Ilorin, which sent them out of the competition on a 4-3 aggregate.

This comes just days after the Caf handed down a record suspension for a similar incident at the same ground in the previous round.

The referee had awarded the hosts a disputed last minute penalty, converted by Chukwuma Akabueze, to secure their win.

Union Douala had been on course to qualify on the away goals rule if the score had stayed at 2-2.

Reports said Union Douala players had in turn been attacked by Nigerian supporters at the end of the game.

At the weekend, Caf imposed a three year ban on goalkeeper Meraoune Abdouni of Algerian club Mouloudia Alger and an 18-month ban on defender Kamel Bouacida after a similar incident.

They attacked referee Noumandiez Doue of the Ivory Coast after their Confederation Cup second round, first leg tie against Kwara United in Ilorin.

Kwara United won 3-0 in that match.

Three other players were suspended for two matches for violent conduct, a club official for six months for running onto the pitch to remonstrate with the match officials and Mouloudia Alger were also fined US$20 000.

Attacks on referees handling African club competition matches have increased markedly in recent years.

Though I doubt Ahly will lose, you might want to wait UNTIL the game is over, you never know what could happen.

EG Gafsa (Tunisia) 1-1 Atraco (Angola)

EG Gafsa advance on the away goals rule (3-3)

Green Buffaloes (Zambia) 1-1 Ismaily (Egypt)

Buffaloes missed a PK in the second half that would have levelled the 2 teams on aggregate. Instead Ismaily will advance to the next round 3-2 on aggregate.

38' El Merreikh (Sudan) 2-0 ASO Chlef (Algeria)

First half almost over and El Merreikh are leading 2-1 on aggregate.
