Al-Hilal Al-Ubayyid will square off with TP Mazembe in Al-Ubayyid, Sudan on Friday.

Kick-off is at 19h00 CAT.

The 2017 CAF Confederation Cup quarter-final first-leg match will take place at the Al-Hilal Al-Ubayyid.

Al-Hilal reached the quarter-finals after securing a second spot finish in Group Group C in this year's tournament.

Ibrahim Hussain, the Al-Hilal coach, will be looking to guide the team to the semi-finals for the first time.

Meanwhile, DR Congo giants Mazembe qualified for the last eight after finishing at the top of Group D.

Mazembe coach Pamphile Mihayo Kazembe is expected to guide the team to the semi-finals for the third time as the Ravens are the defending champions.

The winner on aggregate between Al-Hilal and Mazembe will take on either Moroccan side FUS Rabat or Tunisia's CS Sfaxien in the semi-finals.

South African referee Victor Gomes will officiate the match between Al-Hilal and Mazembe on Saturday.
