CAF Confederation Cup

Teams: Bidvest Wits v Smouha

Date: 08 April 2017

Venue: Bidvest Stadium

Bidvest Wits begin their CAF confederation campaign with a clash against Egyptian outfit, Smouha this afternoon.

The match is scheduled to get underway at 15h00.

Wits dropped into the Africa's second tier continental competition, after they suffered a 2-0 aggregate loss to Al Ahly in the Champions League qualifiers.

The Clever Boys were in action on Tuesday evening, as they were knocked out of the Nedbank Cup by Jomo Cosmos via a penalty shoot-out.

Wits will be without the services of Nazeer Allie and Granwald, who are both out with long-term injuries.

Their Egyptian counterparts defeated Kenyan Premier League side, Ulinzi Stars 4-3 on aggregate in the previous round.

Smouha come into this match on the back of a 2-0 win over Zamalek in an Egyptian Premier League clash.

Wits: Josephs, Khumalo, Frosler, Monare, Pelembe, Pule, Ntshangase, Mhango, Malajila, Gaxa, Motshwari.
