The match is scheduled to get unerwa

The Group B match allows the Libyan side to bag the full three points as they are now on the verge of a Confed Cup exit.

Coach Tarek El Ashri will want to grab the maximum points in front of their home crowd to restore their pride.

In their previous match, they lost 1-0 to the defending champions, Sahel and they will now want to earn their first points.

Alzaeem occupy the bottom of the group with zero points from four matches and their participation is slowly coming to an end.

Furthermore, the hosts will also target an opportunity to avenge their 1-0 loss away in Morocco back in June.

Looking at the visitors, Rabat are almost in the knockout stages as they top the group with 10 points and are confident of getting a point or a win away.

Under the guidance of Hoalid Regragui, the Moroccan side is aware that a draw will see them through as the second placed Etoile has seven points.

Regragui will have to motivate his side to remain sharp and beat complacency which might creep in and disturb their progress.
