Moghreb Tetouan will host Al Hilal in Tetouan on Sunday, in their third Group A outing of the CAF Champions League.

The Moroccans were unlucky to come back pointless from their opening trip to Alexandria after enjoying a two-goal lead over Smouha SC, before managing a goalless draw on home soil against a stronger TP Mazembe side.

And to keep their semifinals hopes alive, they will have to avoid further disappointment when they welcome the Sudanese giants.

However, Spanish coach Sergio Lobera will have to cope with the absence of centre-back pairing Mohamed Aberhoun and Mortada Fall, both suspended for accumulation of bookings.

Meanwhile, group leaders Al Hilal will be looking to extend their unbeaten run and consolidate their first place.

Nabil Kouki’s men secured a precious goalless draw while visiting Mazembe in Lubumbashi in their campaign opener, before sealing a convincing 2-0 victory over Smouha in Omdurman.

The game will kick off at Stade Saniat Rmel at 23h00 CAT on Sunday 26 July 2015.
