Mainland representatives in the CAF Confederation Cup meet Algeria’s Es Setif in the return leg tie to be played at the May 8, 1945 Stadium in Setif this evening.

The match kicks off at 20:00 hours as Tunisia officials will be in charge while match commissioner is Gabonese Jean Fidele Diramba.

Central referee is Ben Hassan Mohamed, while Hmila Anouar and Ben Abdelmoumen Kamel are linesmen. Reserve referee is Kordi Med Said also a Tunisian national.

The Tanzania Football Federation has wished the team the best of luck in the match which Simba need a draw of any nature to sail through.

The Tanzanian team kicks off the game with a psychological boost of a two-goal cushion realized during the first leg tie played at the national Stadium in Dar es Salaam a fortnight ago.

TFF’s member of the executive committee Sylvester Faya is the head of the delegation that landed in Algiers since Wednesday.

Simba spokesman Ezekiel Kamwaga said the team has been accommodated at the Zidane Hotel in central Setif before having practice session yesterday.

Simba dated Setif tie after breezing past Rwanda’s Kiyovu Sport by 3-2 goals aggregate having won the return leg at home by 2-1 goals, the hard way.

It has been the first Tanzania club to reach the CAF Cup final in 1993 and lost by 2-0 goals to Cote d’Ivoire’s Stella Abidjan at the Uhuru Stadium in Dar es Salaam.
