CAF Confederation Cup: Action resumes this weekend with mouth-watering fixtures


This weekend marks the return of the TotalEnergies CAF Confederation Cup, with another thrilling round of African club football scheduled across the continent.

Match Day 3 of the competition this weekend will bring the group stages to a halfway point as the race for a spot in the knockout stages of the competition gradually takes shape.

Sagrada Esperanca of Angola will visit former champions Zamalek on Saturday in a late-afternoon kickoff. Abu Salem of Libya will be looking to build on their 1-0 victory over Sagrada Esperanca from the previous weekend.

On Saturday, Abu Salem hosts SOAR, a team from Guinea, in an earlier kickoff. The Guineans have accumulated zero points and are desperate for a result, so far in the tough Group B.

Rivers United in Nigeria will be trying to avenge their defeat to Dreams FC of Ghana last weekend. They will face Club Africain of Tunisia, who are full of confidence after defeating Academica de Lobito 3-1 on the road in Angola.

When they host the Congolese team Diables Noirs, RS Berkane, the tournament favorites who won the championship two seasons ago, will be looking to extend their lead in Group D.

Egypt’s Modern Future and holders USM Alger will play in an exciting North African derby to end the TotalEnergies CAF Confederation Cup Match Day 3 weekend schedule.

The match in Algers, where both teams are tied on six points after two games, is sure to be exciting as they compete to win Group A.
