Bidvest Wits take aim at Djoliba in Mali

Bidvest Wits will be away to Djoliba AC in the 2019/20 CAF Confederation Cup Group C match on Sunday.

Kick-off is at 18h00 CAT.

The encounter is set to take place at the Stade du 26 Mars in the Malian city of Bamako.

Wits started their group stage campaign with a 0-0 draw against Guinean champions AC Horoya in Johannesburg last week Sunday.

It was the former South African champions’ first-ever match in the group stage and they are now hoping to secure their maiden victory.

Defender Thulani Hlatshwayo, who is the South Africa national team captain, will be hoping to lead Gavin Hunt’s men to a win in Mali.

While striker Gift Motupa scored six goals in the qualifying rounds and he will be keen to add to his tally against Djoliba.

Meanwhile, Malian giants Djoliba managed to hold Libyan outfit Al Nasr to a 1-1 stalemate in Cairo, Egypt last week Sunday.

They will look to their midfielder El-Hadji Salim Bah, who was on the score sheet in the draw against Al Nasr.

Ali Mohamed Adelaide from Comoros will officiate the match between Djoliba and Wits.
