Zuma misses SSU trip to Cairo



SuperSport United are to depart Johannesburg on Tuesday night for Cairo, where they meet ENPPI in the African Confederation cup on Friday.

Their match at the Air Defence Stadium in the Egyptian capital will be played behind closed doors as a new ban on spectators at games in the north African country has been ordered by the country’s security officials.

The game kicks off at 7pm local time, which is the same in South Africa.

SuperSport will return from Cairo straight after their third round, first leg game and host the second leg on May 4 in Atteridgeville.

Both flights are direct from Johannesburg to Cairo, cutting out lengthy and tiring stop overs.

The Nedbank Cup holders travel without Sibusiso Zuma and Prince Hlela, who are suspended.

Zuma was the hero of their last match in the competition, when he scored both goals in the 2-0 second round, second leg win over Petro Atletico of Angola in Atteridgeville.

ENPPI go into the game against their South African opponents in good form after moving into second place in their Egyptian league group, just two points behind leaders Al Ahli, after a draw in their last match last Friday.
