Meanwhile, Zesco are placed third on the group standings having collected two points from three matches.

Zega Mambo’s draw against Agosto was their second in the group stage and they are keen to win away from home.

The Zambian side, who reached the semi-finals of the Champions League in 2016, drew with Swallows at home, before losing to Etoile du Sahel away in Group D.

Seychelles match referee Bernard Camille will officiate the game between Agosto and Zesco.

The other Group D match between Sahel and Swallows is set to be played at the Stade Olympique de Sousse in Sousse on Friday at 21h00 CAT.

The group winners and runners-up will book their places in the quarter-finals of the continental tournament after match day six of the group stage.
