AS Vita Club will square off with Al Ahly in the 2018/19 CAF Champions League match on Saturday.

Kick-off is at 18h00 CAT.

The Group D match is scheduled to be played at the Stade des Martyrs in the Congolese city of Kinshasa.

Jean-Marc Makusu Mundele, who has netted three times in the group stage, will be looking to add to his tally and help his side win at home.

Meanwhile, Al Ahly succumbed to a 1-0 defeat to Tanzanian giants Simba away in their fourth Group D game last month.

The result saw the Egyptian giants remain at the top of the group standings - a point above second-placed Simba.

Al Ahly will look to Nedved, who has netted twice in the group stage, will be keen to inspire his side to victory.
