The second leg of the CAF Confederation Cup game between Sudan’s Al-Hilal and Etoile Sportive du Sahel of Tunisia has been “postponed indefinitely” by the Confederation of African Football (CAF) due to political events in Sudan.
Both clubs were set to play their second leg clash on Sunday, 14 April, 2019 at the El Hilal Stadium in Omdurman, but a new date will now be announced by CAF. Etoile du Sahel beat Al-Hilal 3-1 in the first leg in Sousse and automatically made the second leg a must-win for Al-Hilal.
A statement on the CAF website read: “Due to the current security situation in Sudan, the Total Caf Confederation Cup second leg between El Hilal (Sudan) and Etoile du Sahel (Tunisia) has been postponed indefinitely.
“The match was due to take place on Sunday, 14 April 2019, at the El Hilal Stadium in Omdurman.
“The new date, kick-off time and venue of the match will be decided by Caf and communicated to all parties in due time.”
The first legs of the semi-finals of the Confederation Cup are due to be played on the final weekend in April, so a rescheduled match has to be before then.
