Yanga To Face Tunisia’s Club Africain In Confederation Cup Playoff

Tanzania Premier League champions Yanga  have been drawn against Tunisia’s Club Africain  in the play-off round of the CAF Confederations Cup, with the winner of the two-legged tie set to proceed to the group stages of the tournament.

Yanga will start the tournament at home before playing the return leg in a week’s time.

The record Tanzanian champions are looking to qualify for the group stages of the competition for the fourth time  in the club history.

Yanga will be out to avoid the mistake that denied them a slot in the coveted Caf Champions League group stage when they bowed out on away goals following a 2-1 on aggregate score against Al Hilal Omdurman of Sudan.

The Citizens were among the seven seeded teams that were in Pot A and were paired against Club Africain who were one of the 10 non-seeded Confederations Cup teams.

Club Africain finished fourth in the Tunisian top tier league which ended in July, and was won by Esperance du Tunis.

They started their Confederation Cup on a sound note beating Zanzibar’s Kipanga 7-0 on aggregate.

The first leg matches will be played between November 2-6 while the return tie matches are scheduled for between November 11-13.
