CAF Confederation Cup
Teams: Cape Town City v Young Buffaloes
Date: 20 February 2018
Venue: Athlone Stadium
Cape Town City will be out to book their place in the next round of the CAF Confederations Cup qualifiers when they host Swaziland's Young Buffaloes in the preliminary round second-leg clash.
The match is scheduled to get underway at 19h30.
The Citizens will have no time to lick their wounds following their 1-0 defeat to title rivals Kaizer Chiefs this past weekend as they switch their focus to continental ambitions.
Benni McCarthy’s charges hold a 1-0 lead from the first leg played two weeks ago in Swaziland thanks to a late winner from Nana Akosah-Bempah.
McCarthy rested a few regulars in the first leg in Swaziland, and could look to do the same with Bidvest Wits coming up at the weekend.
Buffaloes are not short of confidence as they lie second in the Swaziland top flight, four points behind leaders Mbabane Swallows after 21 matches.
Here's how they line up:
City: 1. Walters, 4. Kobola, 27. Gumede, 12, Fielies, 6. Seedat, 16. Johannes, 28. Kewuti, 29. Roberts, 21. Ralani, 24. Masina, 20. Moseamedi.
