Mamelodi Sundowns and AS Togo Port will clash in the 2018 CAF Champions League Group C match at the Lucas Moripe Stadium Stadium in Pretoria, South Africa on Friday.

Kick-off 21h00 CAT.

The Brazilians are heading into the game placed fourth on the group standings having accumulated two points from their first three matches.

Sundowns succumbed to a 1-0 defeat to Togo Port in an encounter which was played at the Stade Municipal in Lome, Togo almost two weeks ago.

The South African giants, who won the 2016 Champions League title, are winless in the group stage having draws against Moroccan giants Wydad Casablanca and Guinean side Horoya AC, before facing Togo Port.

Meanwhile, Togo Port are placed third on the group standings having accumulated three points from three games.

The Togolese side secured their first win in the group stage when they recorded a hard-fought narrow victory over Sundowns at home.

Togo Port, who are making their first appearance in the group stage of the Champions League, had registered defeats against Horoya and Wydad, before facing Sundowns.

Democratic Republic of Congo match referee Jean-Jacques Ndala Ngambo will take charge of the game between Sundowns and Togo-Port.

The other Group C game between Wydad and Horoya is scheduled to take place at the Stade Mohammed V in Casablanca on Friday at 20h00 CAT.

The top two teams from the group will advance to the quarter-finals of the competition after match day six of the group stage.
