Salitas look to make most of home advantage



Salitas will look to make the most of home advantage when they host Etoile du Sahel for a Caf Confederation Cup group B match at Stade du 4 Aout in Ouagadougou on Wednesday afternoon.

Kick-off is at 3pm CAT.

Burkina Faso’s Salitas opened their group phase campaign with a 2-0 loss away to Nigeria’s Enugu Rangers on 3 February, with Godwin Aguda and Issac Loute scoring for the Flying Antelopes.

On the same day Etoile du Sahel, who are four-time winners of this continental competition, fell to a 1-0 defeat at home to fellow Tunisians CS Sfaxien – Aymen Harzi’s early goal was all that separated the teams in their derby clash.

The results means Rangers and Sfaxien have an early lead on the log, while Salitas and Etoile cannot afford another early defeat in the race for two berths in the knockout rounds.

Salitas come into the match on the back of a 1-1 draw at home to Douanes in a Burkina Faso domestic championship match on Saturday, while Etoile lost a second straight home match 1-0 when they succumbed to Raja Casablanca on Friday in an Arab Club Champions Cup match.

The other group B match between Sfaxien and Rangers will kick off at 9pm CAT at the Stade Taieb Mhiri.

Burundian referee Georges Gatogato will take charge of the match in Ouagadougou.
