Bejaia eyes six points over Young Africans

Moroccan side Mouloundia Olympique de Bejaia are on the road to Tanzania against Young Africans in their CAF Confederation Cup, group A match tomorrow afternoon at the Benjamin Mkapa National Stadium in Dar-es-Salaam.
Kick-off is at 3:00pm.
MO Bejaia are coming into the game off a disappointing 1-0 loss at the hands of Democratic Republic of Congo side TP Mazembe in their previous match in Lubumbashi.
For this tie, they will be motivated to regroup and revive their semifinals qualification hopes by bagging a win.
Coach Nasser Sandjak will have to motivate his side to go all out and win the match for them to claim the second spot in the group.
They currently occupy the third spot with five points from one victory and two draws, and winning this one will take them to the second spot with eight points provided Mazembe beat Sporting Club Medeama in their Group A match on Sunday afternoon.
Coach Sandjak will pin his hopes on Yacine Salhi and Waliou Ndoye to find their scoring boots and ensure they open up the stubborn Yanga defence.
Judging the hosts, Yanga will also want to bounce back from their 3-1 demolition in Ghana by Sporting Club Medeama last month.
At home, they will be a different side and it could become difficult for the Moroccans to bag a victory.
Although a win will not bring much relief to their cause as they remain placed at fourth with one point resulting from their draw against Medeama at home in July.
In the opening tie, Yanga lost to their visitors away in Morocco back in June and Coach Hans Van der Pluijm will now have to use their home advantage.
On the other hand, Simon Nsuva who scored in their loss in Ghana will be expected to trouble the visiting defence together with Donald Ngoma and ensure they retain the full three points.
