ES Sétif will be out to exact revenge on TP Mazembe when the two clubs lock horns in a 2018 CAF Champions League group stage clash at the Stade du 8-Mai-1945 in Sétif on Friday evening.

Kick-off is at 21h00 CAT.

The Black Eagles lost 4-1 to the very same opponents in the reverse fixture back in May, and will be hoping to right the wrongs suffered in Lubumbashi and duly keep their hopes of CAFCL success alive.

TP Mazembe have already qualified for the knockout stages of the competition, having only dropped points away to MC Alger in their most recent clash.

The Ravens have accumulated 10 points from four games and the five time champions will be favourites to add to their tally in Algeria this weekend, having spent the last few weeks on camp in the North African country.

ES Sétif, who won the 2014 CAFCL (one of two titles for the club), sit in third place in their group with four points - having registered a single win.

The Algerian giants lost 1-0 to MC Alger in their opening home game of the campaign before a 1-1 draw in Morocco against Difaâ El Jadidi folloed by a 2-1 win over the same opponents. They travel to Algiers on matchday six.

Maguette N'Diaye of Senegal will take charge of the clash.
