Wydad Casablanca will battle with Lobi Stars in the 2018/19 CAF Champions League match on Tuesday.

Kick-off is at 21h00 CAT.

The Group A game is set to take place at the Prince Moulay Abdellah Stadium in the Moroccan city of Rabat.

The Moroccan giants secured a 1-0 win against Lobi away in their third Group A game which was played over a week ago.

As a result, Wydad are placed second on the group standings and they are only behind leaders, Mamelodi Sundowns on goal-difference.

Wydad will look to their influential defender Mohamed Nahiri, who hit the back of the net against Lobi.

Meanwhile, Lobi are seeking revenge after succumbing to a narrow defeat at home in Nigeria.

The result saw the Nigerian side remain fourth on the group standings - three points behind the leaders, Sundowns of South Africa.

Striker Yaya Kone, who was on the scoresheet against Sundowns on match-day one, will look to inspire Lobi to victory in Morocco.

Gabonese match referee Eric Otogo-Castane will be in charge of the game between Wydad and Lobi.
