Moghreb Tetouan will play host to Smouha SC in Morocco on Sunday, in matchday five of the 2015 CAF Champions League.

Lying second and fourth in their Group A table, with five and three points to their name respectively, the Moroccans and the Egyptians remain in the race for a spot in the last four of the competition.

However, the two sides are left with little room for error in the final stretch of Africa’s foremost club competition.

A loss in Tetouan will see Smouha pack their bags at the end of the group stage, while a draw will also seal the Alexandria-based side’s fate should Al Hilal scoop all three points against TP Mazembe in Omdurman.

On the other hand, MAT will seal their place in the tournament’s semifinals if they defeat Smouha and Al Hilal lose to TP Mazembe.

The encounter will also serve as a revenge for Moghreb Tetouan, who were leading 2-0 in Egypt in their first clash before Smouha came from behind and turned the tables to enjoy a 3-2 victory.

The game will kick off at Stade Saniat Rmel at 22h30 CAT on Sunday 23 August 2015.
