Al Hilal will look to bounce back in Group B of the CAF Confederation Cup when they host Al Masry in Matchday 2.

The teams will clash at Al Hilal Stadium in Omdurman on Wednesday night, kick-off at 22h00 CAT.

The Blue Wave opened their group stage campaign on a low note, suffering a 1-0 away loss to Morocco’s RS Berkane earlier in the month.

Kodjo Laba’s early goal was enough to condemn the Sudanese side to defeat and leave them in third place on the log standings.

Hilal have been boosted by the signing of Algerian defender Azzedine Ali Guechi, though he has not been registered for CAF competitions and will therefore not feature against Al Masry.

The Egyptian side comes into the game on top of Group B after an opening 2-0 win at home to Mozambique’s UD Songo.

Ahmed Gomaa scored both goals for the Green Eagles, but he will miss this match due to suspension, forcing coach Hossam Hassan to look elsewhere for an attacking spearhead.

The other Group B match sees UD Songo host RS Berkane in Beira earlier the same day.
