Malian outfit Djoliba AC will be out to exact revenge on Enyimba when the two teams meet in a 2018 CAF Confederations Cup clash at the the Stade Modibo Kéïta in Bamako on Sunday evening.

Kick-off is at 21h00 CAT.

Djoliba currently occupy bottom spot in Group C having accumulated four points from four matches. The hosts will need to register only their second win of the campaign if they are to keep their hopes of reaching the quarterfinals alive with a match away to group leaders Williamsville AC to follow.

Two-time CAF Champions League winners, Enyimba, currently occupy third spot in the group after four rounds of fixtures, having won two and lost two this season.

Enyimba kicked off their campaign with a 2-0 win over this weekend's rivals in Port Harcourt before suffering a thumping 3-0 defeat away to CARA Brazzaville in the Congo.

The Nigerians bounced back at home with a 1-0 victory over Williamsville AC, but suffered 2-0 defeat in their most recent clash away in Abidjan. The Elephants are a point behind the Ivorian club and level on points with CARA who they will face on matchday six.

Enyimba beat this weekend's opponents 2-0 in the reverse fixture in Calabar back in May.

Egyptian referee Ibrahim Nour El Din will take charge of the clash.
