Nigeria professional football League champions Enyimba Intl FC will take on Burkina Faso league champions Rahimo FC in the preliminary round of the CAF Champions league.
The two times Africa Champions will be away at Bobo-Dioulasso at the 10,000-capacity wobi Stadium in the first leg.
The return leg will take place at Enyimba FC Stadium in Aba a week later.
The Aba Elephants will be making their nineth appearance in the CAF Champions league and only failed to make it to the group stage on two occasions ( 2002 and 2014).
The Aba Elephants were champions in 2003 and 2004 and reached the semifinals in 2008 and 2011 and crashed out in group stage in 2005, 2006 and 2016.
The winner on aggregate between Enyimba and Rahimo will face either Sudanese side Hillal or Rayon Sports from Rwanda in the second round for a place in the group stage.
