AC Léopards will welcome CS Sfaxien in Dolisie on Sunday, in their final Group B outing of the 2015 Confederation Cup.

The two sides have already dropped out of the race for a semifinals spot, and will be playing for pride before packing their bags.

Lying third on 4 points after five games, AC Léopards are 8 points adrift of Zamalek and Orlando Pirates, who are tied on 12 points at the top of the table and have already sealed their place in the last four.

The winners of the 2012 edition of Africa’s second-tier clubs competition will try to end their continental journey on a good note in the absence of several of their key players, including Sagesse Babélé, Carof Bakoua, Junior Makiessé and Kader Bidimbou, who are on duty with Congo at the All-Africa Games Brazzaville 2015.

As for Club Sportif Sfaxien, they will be eager to claim their first win of the group stage after only picking up a single point from their first five games, which cost Portuguese coach Paulo Duarte his job.

The former Burkina Faso and Gabon boss has been replaced by CA Bizertin manager Chiheb Ellili.

The match will kick off at Stade Denis Sassou-Nguesso at 16h30 CAT on Sunday 13 September 2015.
