Al-Merrikh eye revenge in Omdurman

Ferroviário Beira will be aiming to make huge strides in booking their place in the knockout stages of the 2017 Caf Champions League when they take on Al-Merrikh at the Al-Merrikh Stadium in Omdurman on Tuesday evening.

Kick-off is at 10:00pm CAT.

The Mozambican giants jumped up to second place in group A following a 1-0 win over their opponents in Maputo.

Antonio Dayo's second-half goal led the club to victory in the country's capital as they moved up to four points from three league fixtures.

A 5-0 defeat to Etoile du Sahel in Sousse in their opening group fixture was quickly forgotten as they followed a 0-0 draw against Al-Hilal with a home win over another Sudanese club; Al-Merrikh.

Al-Merrikh are bottom of group A, having only conjured a single point from their allotted fixtures.

A 1-1 draw away to Al-Hilal was followed by a crippling 2-1 defeat at home to Etoile, who scored a stoppage-time winner. Beira adding to their woes earlier this month.

Despite their success on the continent last time out, Ferroviário have suffered successive league defeats since - something they will be eager to put right in Omdurman.
