Their next game is an away fixture against third placed Nigeria on October 10 with the reverse fixture to take place three days later in Algeria.
Libya have played their home games at neutral venues over the last five years because of a FIFA ban imposed on the country after the civil war of 2011.
They played their first game of the qualifiers at the Petro Sport Stadium in Cairo, where they defeated Seychelles 5-1.
