Esperance de Tunis will face off with CR Belouizdad in the CAF Champions League quarter-final second-leg match on Saturday.

Kick-off is at 18h00 CAT.

The match is scheduled to be played at the Stade Olympique de Radès in a Tunisian harbour city in Ben Arous Governorate, Rades.

The first-leg encounter ended in a 2-0 win in favour of Belouizdad at the Stade du 5 Juillet, in the capital city of Algeria, Algiers.

Esperance will look to their dangerous front three of Taha Yassine Khenissi, Anice Badri and Hamdou Elhouni as the Tunisian champions target a place in the semi-finals.

Meanwhile, Belouizdad need to avoid a defeat in Tunisia in order to book their place in the semi-finals for the first time in the club’s history.

Forward Amr Sayoud and midfielder Zakaria Draoui scored the Algerian club’s two goals in the first-leg game and they will be confident of inspiring the team to a win in Rades.

The winner on aggregate between Esperance and Belouizdad will take on either South African giants Mamelodi Sundowns or defending champions Al Ahly of Egypt in the semi-finals.

The first-leg clash between Sundowns and Al Ahly ended in a 2-0 win in favour of the latter in Egypt and they will now meet again in South Africa on Saturday.

Gambian match referee Bakary Gassama will officiate the second-leg encounter between Esperance and Belouizdad.
