SuperSport United and Horoya will meet in the CAF Confederation Cup Group D encounter at the Lucas Moripe Stadium in Pretoria on Friday.

Kick-off is 19h00.

Matsatsantsa beat Cape Town City 4-2 at home in their last competitive match which was an Absa Premiership encounter on Tuesday.

As a result, the South African side are enjoying a six-match unbeaten run in all competitions - having registered four victories and two draws.

The player to watch out for in the SuperSport team is Jeremy Brockie. The striker is the current Confederation Cup top goalscorer with five goals.

Meanwhile, Horoya recorded a 2-0 home victory over Hafia in a Guinee Championnat National game at the Stade du 28 Septmbre last weekend.

This was HAC's fourth victory in their last five matches in all competitions. The other game was a 3-2 defeat to Moroccan side Ittihad Tanger in the CAF Confederation Cup match last month.

Bassirou Ouedraogo, the Horoya striker, is the dangerman for the Guinea side. The attacker has scored in each of his last two Confederation Cup games.

Ugandan referee Denis Batte will be in charge of the Group D encounter.
