ASEC Mimosas will battle Al Ittihad in Tunis on Saturday, in the return leg of their Confederation Cup round of 32 tie.

The match has been moved from troubled Libya for security reasons.

One goal up in Abidjan in the first leg with a Zakri Krahiré first-half opener, the Ivoirians were ultimately held to a 1-1 draw and are now facing a do-or-die trip to Tunisia.

Indeed, the ‘Yellow and Black’ are left with no choice but to grab a win or score at least two goals without losing, as even a goalless draw will see Al Ittihad through to the next round on away goals.

ASEC coach Alain Gouaméné received a major boost ahead of the clash, with the return of midfielders Mark Sekyere and Georges Eric Bile, winger Ba Loua D’Avila and striker Saliou Guindo, who were all missing in Abidjan.

The game will kick off at El Menzah Stadium at 16h30 CAT, with the aggregate winners to face Onze Créateurs of Mali or Niger outfit Sahel SC in the round of 16.
