Libya will lock horns with Nigeria in the 2019 CAF Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) Qualification Group E match.

The encounter will be played at the Stade Taïeb Mhiri in Sfax, Tunisia on Tuesday, October 16.

Kick-off is at 20h00 CAT.

The Meditteranean Knights were thumped 4-0 by Nigeria in a Group E match which was played in Uyo over the weekend.

The defeat left Libya placed third on the group standings with four points from three games. They are two points behind second-placed Nigeria.

The North African side will be looking to return to winning ways against a much-fancied Nigeria side.

Meanwhile, Nigeria are oozing with confidence after humiliating a hapless Libya side at home.

The win took Super Eagles to second spot on the group standings with six points from three games. They are only a point behind leaders, South Africa.

The West African giants will be hoping to move to the top of the standings with a win in Tunisia where Libya are hosting their home games.
