The Red Devils are already seeded to be on top of one of the two groups, with Sfaxien of Tunisia at the summit of the other.
Ahly will take part in the competition for the first time ever, after the Red Devils were ousted from the CAF Champions League last 16 round at the hands of Kano Pillars of Nigeria.
