FUS Rabat will hope to cause an upset in their second CAF Confederation Cup match when they visit Rivers United on Wednesday.

Rabat are motivated following their 3-0 win over the Ugandan champions, Kampala Capital City Authority in the Group A opening match two weeks ago.

Coming to this one, the Moroccan giants will be looking to claim the win and ensure they remain on top of the log table.

Rabat have three points on top and a win will see them consolidating their spot with four points from two matches.

Campaigners such as Brahim El Bahri, Yusupha Njie and Karim Benarif all found the goals for Rabat in the opening round over KCCA and will hope their carry scoring form into this one.

However, visiting the Nigerian giants is set to be a test as they will want to bounce back from a previous loss.

The Nigerian Premier League side occupy the third spot with zero points from a loss at the hands of Club Africain in their first match.

A 3-1 loss to Africain was not a good result for the Nigerians and that will push them win at home and ensure they bring back the smiles to their home crowd.

Striker John Odumegwu is the man who netted for United in their 3-1 loss in Tunisia and will be handed the responsibility to find the back of the net at home.

The match is set to be staged at Yakubu Gowon Stadium in Port Harcourt on Wednesday at 17:00 CAT.
