LIVE: Smouha FC v Recreativo do Libolo | CAF Confederation Cup
Match K.O @ 18:00 Cairo Local Time
Venue: Borg El-Arab Stadium, Alexandria (Egypt)
An injury-hit Smouha side will be looking to bounce back from their opening 1-0 Confederation Cup defeat at ZESCO United when they host Angola’s Recreativo do Libolo at Alexandria’s Borg El-Arab Stadium on Wednesday.
Playing in Group C, which also comprises Sudan’s Hilal Obayed, the Alexandrians will be hoping they overcome a host of absences against the Angolans, with a total of seven players missing out due to different reasons.
Striker Ahmed Temsah, Amr Saad, Mahmoud El-Sayed, Mansou Kouakou and Ahmed Nabil are all absent due to injury.
Center-back Patrick Malo will miss out due to automatic suspension after receiving his second yellow card against ZESCO, with Hossam Hassan serving a two-match suspension for attempting to attack the referee in the 1-0 defeat by the Zambians.
Recreativo beat Hilal Obayed 1-0 in their opening group game as they share top spot with ZESCO going into the second group game.
