CAF Confederation Cup
Teams: Bidvest Wits v Enyimba 
Date: 06 April 2018
Venue: Bidvest Stadium 
Bidvest Wits will be looking to qualify for the CAF Confederations Cup group stages when they host Nigerian side Enyimba in the first-leg of their play-off tie on Friday night.
The match is scheduled to get underway at 20h00.
Wits are having the second bite of the cherry in Africa after failing to make the CAF Champions League group stage.
The Clever Boys fell into the last round before the group stages of the Confederations Cup after being knocked out by Angolan side Primeiro de Agosto 3-2 on penalties.
However, Gavin Hunt’s charges will be boosted by their domestic league form as they stretched their unbeaten run to nine matches after beating Maritzburg United 2-1 on Tuesday evening.
Enyimba are considered the most successful club in Nigeria after winning two CAF Champions League titles in a row in 2003 and 2004.
Furthermore, they may not be unfamiliar with a South African side as they played Mamelodi Sundowns in the group stages in 2016, winning 3-1 at home and losing 2-1 in Tshwane.
Enyimba got to this stage of the competition after dispatching Benin Republic side Energie FC 5-2 on aggregate.
Here's how they line up:
Wits: Josephs, Gyimah, Hlatshwayo, Khumalo, Klate, Rodgers, Hlanti, Claasen, Mncwango, Frosler, Myeni.
Subs: Peters, Ntshangase, Monare, Ritchie Pelembe, Majoro, Pule.
Enyimba: Dauda, Francis, Bashir, Abalogu, Dimgba, Oladuntoye, Ojo, Mustapha, Okonkwo, Ogbonnaya, Oladapo.
Subs: Governor, Omofoman, Chukwude, Ibenegbu, Farouk, Ezenwa, Uche.
