CS Sfaxien will play host to Zamalek in Sfax on Sunday, in their fifth Group B outing of the 2015 CAF Confederation Cup.

Despite suffering their first defeat in the competition in their previous continental trip, with a 1-0 loss to AC Léopards in Dolisie, the ‘White Knights’ remain well on course for a semifinal spot on equal footing with Orlando Pirates at the top of the table on nine points.

And a draw in Tunisia will prove enough to see them through to the last four with one game remaining.

Boosted by their first Egyptian Premier League title since 2004 and a qualification for the semifinals of the national cup against Ittihad of Alexandria on penalties, the Cairo giants will be expected to finish the job on Sunday.

Bringing up the rear in the group with a single point to their name, CS Sfaxien are already out and have nothing but pride to play for, while coach Paulo Duarte is under heavy fire after another disappointment and their elimination in the quarterfinals of the Tunisian Cup.

The match will kick off at Stade Taieb Mhiri at 20h30 CAT on Sunday 23 August 2015.
