CAFCC: NPFL Clubs get match officials for second leg ties


As the final leg of the CAF Confederations Cup playoffs loom, the Confederation of African Football, CAF has announced the match officials in charge of matches come next week.

Senegalese officials Maguette Ndiaye, Ababacar Sene and Nouha Bangoura will take charge of proceedings when Nigerian Champions Plateau United travel to Algeria to face USM Algers.

The tie is expected to attract special interest going by the unconfirmed allegations of bribery surrounding the first leg in Lagos.

Former African Champions Enyimba will have the trio of Angolan match officials with Helder Martins De Carvalho, leading Evanildo G. Dos Santos Martins, Rosario C.Calembela when they face South African Premier League Champion Bidvest Wits at the Uj Esuene Stadium. The first leg ended 1-1.

When Aiteo cup champion Akwa United search for three unreplied goals to progress against Sudanese side Al Hilal at the Godswill Akpabio stadium Uyo, Seychelles officials that will be in charge of the game include Bernard Camille, Hensley Danny Petrousse and James Fedrick Emile.

Last season’s league runners up, MFM FC will be the guest of Djoliba in Mali and will have Jean Claude Ishimwe, Ambroise Hakizimana, and  Honoré Simba from Rwanda at the helm when that game goes down.

The matches are scheduled for Tuesday and Wednesday 17th and 18th of April.

The trio of Enyimba, Akwa United and Plateau United will be on parade on Tuesday while MFM will take to the pitch on Wednesday.
