Saint George will play host to AS Vita Club in the 2017 CAF Champions League Group C match at the Addis Ababa Stadium on Sunday.

Kick-off is at 15h00 CAT.

Kidus Giorgis drew 0-0 with Tunisian giants Esperance du Tunis in their last group match was played in Addis Ababa last week Tuesday.

The draw sees the Ethiopian giants placed third on the Group C log with two points. They are two points behind the leaders Mamelodi Sundowns.

Saladin Said, who has five goals in this year's tournament, will be hoping to find the back of the net for Saint George and help them beat Vita.

Meanwhile, Vita were stunned 3-1 by South African giants Sundowns in their previous group match which was played in Kinshasa last week Wednesday.

The defeat sees the DR Congolese giants remain fourth on the Group C table without a single point. They are two points behind third-placed Saint George.

Francisco Ondo has netted three important goals for Vita in this year's tournament and he will be looking to help his side win in Ethiopia.

Rwandan referee Louis Hakizimana will be in charge of the encounter between Saint George and Vita.
