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.

Kick-off is at 3:00pm CAT.

The hosts head into the clash in third place in the group, level on points with AS Otôho, but behind the Congolese club in the head-to-head record

As a result, HUSA will not only need to win their final group fixture, but also hope for a favour from defending champions Raja Casablanca who sit bottom of the group on four points, a point behind their Moroccan counterparts.

The third Moroccan club in the group, Berkane, have already booked their place in the knockout stages as group winners. The Oranges, who have yet to lose a group game, have accumulated 11 points from their five games.

Victory or even a draw for them away to HUSA will open the door for Raja who will need nothing but a win in Owando if they are to keep their aspirations of defending the title they won last season alive.

Goals from Burkina Faso duo Alain Traore and Issoufou Dayo spearheaded Berkane to a 2-1 win in the reverse fixture.
