The last round of matches in the 2018/19 Total CAF Confederations Cup is set to take place at this very weekend with some mouth watering fixtures.

Most clubs are yet to book their tickets for the quarter finals ahead of the various meetings across the continent.

In Group A, Hassania Agadir will be hoping to keep their CAF Confederations Cup hopes alive when they play host to Group A rivals RS Berkane at Stade Adrar in Agadir on Sunday afternoon.

Agadir will be hoping for a favour from fellow countrymen Raja Casablanca who will also take on Congolese side AS Otoho as both are on five points.

In Group B, Etoile du Sahel will be expected to confirm their place in the knockout stages when they host Salitas at Stade Olympique de Sousse in Sousse on Sunday.

The Tunisian giants head into the fixture in second spot in Group B, two points adrift of local rivals and three-time CAFCC champions CS Sfaxien.

Sfaxien have already booked their place in the quarter-finals of this year’s competition following a 2-1 win over Etoile last time out, and the Red & White will be expected to join their Tunisian counterparts in the knockout stages with either a draw or win this weekend.

In Group C

Ghana’s Kumasi Asante Kotoko have arrived in Mbombela where they plan to upset Zesco |United in order to qualify for the quarter finals.

Nkana FC will also face Al Hilal in |Sudan and look forward to get at least a point in order to secure a quarter final berth.

In Group D

Zamalek head coach Christian Gross has warned his troops of complacency ahead of their crucial Caf Confederations Cup clash away to NA Hussein Dey in Algeria this coming weekend.

The White Knights recorded their first away win in African competitions since 2016 with victory over Petro de Luanda earlier this month, before beating Gor Mahia 4-0 on home soil in their most recent encounter.

The White Knights lead the group on eight points, followed by Petro and Hussein Dey on seven points respectively. Gor Mahia, who host the Angolan’s in Nairobi on Sunday are on six points and also still in the running for a knockout stage berth.

The Accra representatives of Kumasi Asante Kotoko were dismissed from the Disciplinary Committee hearing on Thursday when they accompanied their colleague Dr. Yaw Amo Sarpong.

Dr. Amo Sarpong was invited for hearing after it was confirmed that he pulled a gun and also fired a warning shot during the NC Special Cup match between Kotoko and Berekum FC at the Golden City Park in Berekum.

He was accompanied by the Communications Director for the club, Lawyer Sarfo Duku and the two Accra reps; Mr. Edmund Ackah and Nana Kwame Dankwa.

Mr. Edmund Ackah and Nana Kwame Dankwa were dismissed from the DC’s hearing panel on Thursday May, 17, 2019 after they had written their names on the attendance sheet, introduced themselves and also disclosed their purpose of being there.
