Africain out for vengeance against Mazembe



Club Africain will square off with TP Mazembe in the 2018 Caf Champions League group C match at the Stade Olympique de Rades in Tunisia on Tuesday.

Kick-off is at 6pm CAT.

The Tunisian giants registered their second defeat in group C when they succumbed to a humiliating 8-0 defeat to Mazembe away earlier this month.

The defeat left Africain placed third on the group standings - three points behind second-placed Mazembe.

Africain coach Chiheb Ellili announced his resignation barely 48-hours after the shocking defeat to the five-time Champions League winners, Mazembe.

The club has since revealed that Khaled Souissi and Mehdi Siffi have taken over as caretaker coaches.

Meanwhile, Mazembe secured their first win in group C when they hammered a hapless Africain side in Lubumbashi.

The DR Congolese giants are now second on the group table - three points behind leaders CS Constantine of Algeria.

Mazembe assistant coach David Mwakusu is hoping for an improved performance by the Ravens, who recorded a narrow 1-0 win over Don Bosco in a Congolese Super Ligue match last week.

"The victory over Club Africain is in the past, it was time to return to reality, with this championship game (against Don Bosco)," Mwakasu said.

"Everyone noticed that our players did not put in a lot of effort as they were too relaxed, thank goodness we won."
