Sudanese giants Al-Hilal Al-Ubbayyid are out to claim the maximum points as they meet Angola's Recreativo do Libolo in a CAF Confederation Cup, Group C match on Saturday.

The hosts are motivated to play after coming from a 2-1 win over Egyptian side SC Smouha in their previous match.

However, coming to this encounter, they know winning at home is crucial in the tournament and will go out to do so.

Al-Hilal lead Group C with seven points from five matches after two wins and one draw.

With matches slowly becoming few in the group stages, a win will be vital for the home side.

In the opening round, the Bulls claimed a 1-0 win in Libolo and this encounter presents an opportunity for coach Ibrahim Hassan's men to avenge the loss.

Looking at the visitors, Libolo are placed at number two on the log table with six points from five matches.

Heading to Sudan, they will be gunning for their third win in the group as they have six points.

Coach Vaz Pinto's charges will be in high spirits ahead of this tie as they are fresh from a 3-0 win over Zambian side, Zesco United last week.

The encounter is set to be staged at Al-Ubayyid Stadium in Al Obayed on Saturday at 20:00 (CAT).
