The White Knights managed to knock holders Esperance out of the competition after defeating the Tunisian side 3-2 on aggregate.
On the other hand, the Red Devils booked their place at the last four after beating South Africa’s Mamelodi Sundowns 3-1 on aggregate.
In a statment, the Egyptian minister hailed the great efforts, exerted by the players of both clubs.
He also hoped that both clubs can reach the final to add another continental title to Egypt.
