The draw for the group stage of the CAF Confederation Cup saw Libya's only participant Al-Akhdar club falling into a relatively difficult group, Group A, with Angolan San Eloi Lupopo clubs and South African Marumo Gallants, which eliminated Al-Ahly Tripoli from the tournament, and the Algerian USM Alger, one of the most prominent teams in the continent, which won the title in previous years.

16 teams qualified for the group stage of the Confederation Cup, and they were divided into 4 levels, each of which includes 4 clubs. A team from each level was placed in each of the four groups.

Al-Akhdar will play its first match in the tournament on February 12, when it hosts Saint-Éloi Lupopo at Benina Martyrs Stadium in Benghazi.
