Angola and Tanzania are scheduled to meet in the 2017 COSAFA Cup Group A match at the Royal Bafokeng Stadium in Rustenburg on Tuesday.

Kick-off is at 19h30 CAT.

Palancas Negras recorded a 1-0 victory over Mauritius in their first group match which was played at the Moruleng Stadium in Moruleng on Sunday.

The victory sees Angola placed second on the Group A standings with three points and their coach Roberto Bianchi will be targeting another win on Tuesday.

Augusto Domingos Quibeto, who scored against Mauritius, is nursing an injury and Palancas Negras will be hoping that the striker regains his full fitness before they face Tanzania.

Meanwhile, Tanzania brushed aside Malawi 2-0 in their first group match which was also played in Moruleng on Sunday.

The win took the Taifa Stars to the top of the Group A standings with three points and another victory for the Salum Mayanga-coached side will see them remain at the top.

Shiza Kichuya Ramadhani, who grabbed a brace against Malawi, is the player to watch out for in the Tanzania team and he will be targeting more goals against Angola.
