Cotonsport FC will face off with JS Kabylie in the CAF Confederation Cup semi-final first-leg encounter on Sunday.

Kick-off is at 18h00 CAT.

The game is set to take place at the Roumdé Adjia Stadium in the capital of the North Region of Cameroon, Garoua.

Cotonsport sneaked into the semi-finals after defeating Senegalese side ASC Jaraaf on the away goals rule following a 2-2 draw in the quarter-finals.

The Cameroonian giants’ star player is Lambert Araina, who has scored some important goals for his side in this season’s Confederation Cup.

The 22-year-old forward hit the back of the net twice in the group stage, before scoring against Jaraaf in the first-leg clash.

Meanwhile, Kabylie progressed to the semi-finals after edging out Tunisian giants CS Sfaxien 2-1 on aggregate in the quarter-finals.

Redha Bensayah played an instrumental role in helping the Algerian giants reach the semi-finals.

The 26-year-old winger found the back of the net both home and away against Sfaxien and he could be key to a win over Cotonsport.

The winner on aggregate between Cotonsport and Kabylie will face Egyptian outfit Pyramids FC or Moroccan giants Raja Casablanca in the final.

Egyptian referee Amin Omar will be in charge of the first-leg match between Cotonsport and Kabylie.
