The final battle of CAF Confederation Cup, Group B giants takes the centre stage when CS Sfaxien take on MC Alger on Saturday.
With both giants having already qualified for the knockout stages, the match remains a thriller set for Sfax in Tunisia.
Sfaxien occupy the second spot in the group as they have 10 points from five matches and their mission is to challenge the log leaders, MC Alger.
Fresh from a 3-1 drubbing of Mbabane Swallows in Swaziland, Sfaxien are out to challenge the Algerians as they want to finish top of the group.
However, Alger will be boosted by their 2-1 win in the opening round as they claimed the full three points, but this match will be a different ball game.
To the visitors, Alger are also in high spirits after a deserved 2-0 win over South African side Platinum Stars at home last Friday.
Alger occupy the top spot with 11 points from five games and even though they are away, they will bank on their confidence to win the match.
A spot for them in the knockout stages is already secured, but this match will present coach Kamel Mouassa (Alger) and coach Jorge Costa with a chance to use their fringe players.
The encounter will be hosted at Stade Taïeb Mhiri in Sfax on Saturday at 19:00 (CAT).
