CAF CC: Rayon Sport face Rivers United on Sunday in Port Harcourt

Posted on Apr 11 2017

The Rwanda Peace Cup reigning champions Rayon Sports will face Rivers United of Nigeria in the play-off round of the CAF Confederation Cup on Sunday, April 16 in Port Harcourt.

The development was confirmed early this week in a communication received from the Nigeria Football Federation.

According to the communication, the first leg between Rivers United and Rayon Sports will be played on April 16 at Liberation Stadium at 16h00 in Port Harcourt.

The game which was initially set to be played in the weekend of 7-9 was later postponed by CAF due to the commemoration of the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi help every year from April 7-13 upon request from Rwanda Football Federation.

Consequently, to honour the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi victims, CAF considered this request as a force majeure and decided the two matches for one week to be played between April 15 and April 23.”

The first leg of the Caf Confederation Cup playoff round will be played in Port Harcourt on April 16 before the return leg in Kigali on April 22.

Rayon Sports, who are the league table leaders in the Rwanda Premier League, reached this stage at the continental level after Malian side Onze Createurs was deemed ineligible following FIFA’s suspension of Mali last month.

Earlier in the preliminary round, the Blues made light work of South Sudan’s Al Wau Salaam 6-0 on aggregate over two legs.

Meanwhile, Rivers United were bundled out of the Caf Champions League first round by Sudan’s El Merreikh 4-3 on aggregate after winning 3-0 at home and collapsing 4-0 in Khartoum last month.

The winner between the two sides will proceed to the lucrative group stages where every team is assured of at least $275,000.
