Bidvest Wits will start and end their CAF Confederation Cup adventure at home, with games in Mali, Libya and Guinea taking place in-between as they hope to progress out of the groups.
The Clever Boys made history for themselves recently when they booked their spot in the CCC proper after manoeuvring their way through the qualification rounds, and yesterday they discovered which teams they had been pitted against as they seek to secure a place in the quarterfinals.
Wits get underway against 16-time Guinean champions, Horoya AC, at Bidvest Stadium on December 1 according to CAF, with their first away trip seeing them travel to face 2012 CCC finalists, Djoliba AC of Mali. Their year will then end with a home tie against Libyan outfit, El Nasr.
Gavin Hunt’s side find themselves alone in the group stages after TS Galaxy were knocked out at the final hurdle by Nigerian giants, Enyimba.
Wits’ fixture list in full:
Wits v Horoya - December 1
Djoliba v Wits - December 8
Wits v El Nasr - December 29
El Nasr v Wits - February 16
Horoya v Wits - February 23
Wits v Djoliba - March 8
The top two teams from the group will progress to the last eight where it goes from a league format to a knockout stage, and Hunt will be eager to progress further in the tournament after they smashed home 11 goals in four games in qualifying.
Do you think Wits can finish in the top two of this group?
