CAF Confederation Cup Group D log leaders, Athletique Club Horoya will be hoping to retain the full three points when they host SuperSport United on Saturday.

The Guinean side has had a good run in the competition as they sit at the top of the log table with eight points so far.

After five matches in the campaign, Horoya have eight points from two wins and two draws.

Their biggest asset is their solid defending as they have conceded only three goals.

The previous meeting between these two sides in South Africa produced a 2-2 draw.

Coming to the second-placed United, the Pretoria-based side will want to claim a win and also maximise their chances of making it to the next stage.

This match comes after their triumph in the Nedbank Cup final last weekend over Soweto giants Orlando Pirates and their morale is high.

However, United only have one win to show for their efforts in Group B coupled with three draws - they have six points.

The encounter is set to be staged at Stade du 28 Septembre in Conakry on Saturday, 01 July at 17:00 (CAT).
