It has been a long and harsh road to the last 16 round of the CAF Confederation Cup for Lidoda Duvha, we are now in the round known as the Play-Off round.
It all started with victories against Motor Action (3-1) in the preliminary round, Saint Eloi Lupopo (6-4) 1st Round, then Warri Wolves (3-3 away goal) in the 2nd Round. Now we look forward to the next challenge which is the Play-Offs.
Al Merreikh is the next obstacle in the top performance of Leopards. The first game will be on the 29 June 2012 and the return leg on the 13 July 2012.
This is how the progressive structure of the tournament will be:
In the play-off round, the winners from the second round will play against the losers from the 2012 CAF Champions League second round. The winners of the CAF Confederation Cup second round will host the second leg at home.
There will be two groups formed from the winners of the Play-Offs (Group A and Group B). Each group will have 4 teams who will face each other resulting in 3 games per team. A point system will be used and the 2 teams with the most points will therefore progress to the semi-finals.
The Winners of both the group stages will then face the Runner-up teams from the group stages.
The 2 Winners from the semi-finals will battle it out in the final.
