African Confederation Cup 2010
Twice winners CS Sfaxien launch their campaign at the mini-league stage of the Orange CAF Confederation Cup this weekend with a trip to Alexandria as guests of Egyptian torchbearers Haras El-Hodoud.
The North African duo face-off in arguably the top-liner of Group B scheduled for the Max Stadium; a venue which has proved unwelcoming for visiting teams.
The Egyptian Cup holders, making their third successive appearance at the last eight of the second tier continental club championship, boast of an impressive record at home, scoring a colossal 18 goals and letting in just two en route to reaching this stage.
“It is not an easy thing but I am confident and anything is possible. First and foremost there is no easy team in the competition, we are facing a tough team from Morocco and I think we have prepared ourselves well for a good result.”
Nyirenda will also be without key players Makundika Sakala and Allen Mukuka, but he remains positive about their chances.
In Group A, Libyan champions Al-Ittihad will face Sudanese giants Al-Hilal in Tripoli whilst surprise packets, AS FAN of Niger lock horns Mali’s Djoliba in Niamey.
