The 2015 CAF Confederation Cup group stage was played from 26 June to 13 September 2015. A total of eight teams competed in the group stage to decide the four places in the knockout stage of the 2015 CAF Confederation Cup.[1]

Draw[edit]

The draw for the group stage was held on 5 May 2015, 11:00 UTC+2, at the CAF headquarters in Cairo, Egypt.[2] The eight winners of the play-off round were drawn into two groups of four. There were no seedings.[3]

The following eight teams were entered into the draw, whose identity were not known at the time of the draw:

Format[edit]

Each group was played on a home-and-away round-robin basis. The winners and runners-up of each group advanced to the semi-finals.

Tiebreakers[edit]

The teams were ranked according to points (3 points for a win, 1 point for a draw, 0 points for a loss). If tied on points, tiebreakers would be applied in the following order:[1]

  1. Number of points obtained in games between the teams concerned;
  2. Goal difference in games between the teams concerned;
  3. Goals scored in games between the teams concerned;
  4. Away goals scored in games between the teams concerned;
  5. If, after applying criteria 1 to 4 to several teams, two teams still have an equal ranking, criteria 1 to 4 are reapplied exclusively to the matches between the two teams in question to determine their final rankings. If this procedure does not lead to a decision, criteria 6 to 9 apply;
  6. Goal difference in all games;
  7. Goals scored in all games;
  8. Away goals scored in all games;
  9. Drawing of lots.

Groups[edit]

The matchdays were 26–28 June, 10–12 July, 24–26 July, 7–9 August, 21–23 August, and 11–13 September 2015.[4]
