Recreativo do Libolo will face off with Smouha in the 2017 CAF Confederation Cup Group C match at the Estadio Municipal de Calulo in Calulo on Sunday.

Kick-off is at 16h00 CAT.

Libolo suffered a 2-0 defeat to Sudanese outfit Al-Hilal Al-Ubayyid in their previous group match which was played in Al-Ubayyid last weekend.

The defeat left the Angolan side placed third on the Group C standings with six points. They are one point behind second-placed ZESCO.

A victory over ZESCO will be enough to send Libolo to the knockout stages if the Zambian side suffered a defeat to Al Hilal, who have already qualified.

Meanwhile, Smouha drew 1-1 with Zambian side ZESCO United in their previous group match which was played in Alexandria last weekend.

The draw left the Egyptian side placed at the bottom of Group C standings with five points. They are two points behind second-placed ZESCO.

Smouha can still qualify for this year's quarter-finals if they defeat Libolo and the other result between Al Hilal and ZESCO goes their way.

Referee William Agbobi, who hails from Ghana, will be in charge of the encounter between Libolo and Smouha.
