Guinean outfit AC Horoya are out chasing their second win in the CAF Champions League when they face off against Wydad Casablanca on Tuesday.
Horoya and Casablanca have never met before and will lock horns for the first time on Tuesday at 18:00 (CAT) at Stade du 28 Septembre in Conakry.
Horoya have had a bright start so far in their campaign and will hope for continuity at home against the Moroccan side.
The Conakry-base club got their Group C campaign underway with a win over AS Togo Port and a 2-2 draw to Mamelodi Sundowns at home.
Resulting from the two matches so far, they have four points on the log table with as many goals, but have conceded three times.
Heading to this encounter, their mission is to close the back door and find their way upfront to remain in contention of booking a spot into the next stage.
Shifting focus to the visitors, Casablanca will also chase a win away in Conakry to remain at the top of the log table.
The North Africans have one win and a draw out of their two matches so far and a win is what they will be targeting.
As the reigning champions, Casablanca drew against the Brazilians in Pretoria before demolishing AS Togo Port 3-0 in May.
They have four points on the table, equal with their hosts, but separated on goal difference.
