Al-Hilal Omdurman will be aiming to take a huge step towards qualifying for final four of this season's Caf Confederations Cup when they take on Etoile du Sahel at Stade Olympique de Sousse on Sunday.

Kick-off is at 18h00 CAT.

Etoile booked their place in the knockout stages after finishing in second spot in Group B, two points behind Tunisian rivals CS Sfaxien.

The two-time champions scored a mere six goals in six group stage matches, but it proved enough as they edged Enugu Rangers and Salitas to a place in the quarter-finals.

Al-Hilal advanced to the final eight as Group C winners. The Sudanese giants accumulated 11 points to beat Zambia's Nkana to top spot. The Blues Waves' Waleed Hamid is the joint top-scorer in this year's competition with six goals.

The second-leg will take place in Omdurman next weekend.
