Mozambique will be expected to seal their place in the third round of 2018 African Nations Championship (CHAN) qualifiers when they welcome Madagascar to the Estádio do Zimpeto in Maputo on Sunday afternoon.

Kick-off in the Mozambican capital is set for 15h00 CAT.

The Mambas held the same opponents to a 2-2 stalemate in Antananarivo last week - netting two vital away goals as they aim to seal their place at a second CHAN showpiece.

Njiva Rakotoarimalala scored a brace for Barea in the Southern Zone first-leg clash, but goals from Salomao Mandlane and Manuel Fernandes firmly put Mozambique in the driving seat heading into this weekend's clash.

Tirelo Mositwane of Botswana will officiate the match.

The aggregate winner of the tie will face either Mauritius or Angola in the final phase of qualification.
