Tunisian outfit CS Sfaxien will invade South Africa hoping to beat Platinum Stars in their Caf Confederation Cup group B encounter at the Royal Bafokeng Stadium on Wednesday.
Kick-off is at 7:00pm CAT.
Sfaxien are fresh from a 3-0 win over Dikwena at home and will now hope to maintain the same form in Rustenburg.
Coach Jorge Costa wants to hand the Tunisian giants another win as their mission is to consolidate their spot in the group.
Sfaxien are leading the pack with six points from three matches and will be out to get a win which will take them to nine points.
Looking at the hosts, the club is yet to announce if assistant coach Willem Jackson will lead the team on a caretaker basis as coach Cavin Johnson parted ways with the club a few weeks ago.
Although they have appointed the former Botswana national team coach in Peter Butler, they have to forget about their off-the-field issues and focus on winning this one at home.
Dikwena are yet to claim a win in the group after losing two matches and earning one draw so far. A third loss could spell the end of their knockout stage aspirations.
The Rustenburg-based club will hope to use this match as an opportunity to claim their first three points in front of their home supporters.
Sitting at the bottom with one point after three matches means the South Africans will have to improve their showing, especially at home.
Stars drew 1-1 against MC Alger, lost 4-2 to Mbabane Swallows in Swaziland as well as their recent 3-0 defeat to Sfaxien.
Furthermore, the technical team will hope skipper Vuyo Mere and striker Ndumiso Mabena lead by example.
