AS Vita will look for a first-leg advantage when they host RS Berkane in a 2018 CAF Confederation Cup quarterfinal this weekend.

The match is set for Stade Des Martyrs in Kinshasa on Sunday, September 16, kick-off at 18h00 CAT.

Vita qualified for the last eight by finishing second in Group A, where they collected 10 points from their six matches against Raja Casablanca (who narrowly topped the group on 11 points), ASEC Mimosas and Aduana Stars.

The DR Congo club had already secured qualification for the knockout stages by the time they rounded off their group phase campaign with a 2-0 loss to ASEC Mimosas in Abidjan on August 29.

Berkane, meanwhile, topped Group B by claiming 13 points from their six matches against Al Masry, UD Songo and Al Hilal.

The Moroccan side were already assured of their place in the quarters before their final group match at home to Mozambique’s UD Songo, but they still claimed a 2-1 win.

Goals from Alain Traore and Mohammed Farehane ensured RSB stayed at the top of the standings and enjoyed a seeded position for the last eight draw conducted earlier this month.

Malian referee Mahamadou Keita will take charge of the match in Kinshasa. The return match is scheduled for Sunday, September 23 at the Municipal Stadium in Berkane.
