Eric Tinkler's men lost the opening duel 2-1 in Nelspruit in July, with Maarouf Youssef and Mostafa Fathi eclipsing Lehlohonolo Majoro's 68th minute opener at Mbombela Stadium.

Both sides have already qualified for the semi-finals of the continental event with 12 points from five games.

The White Knights, however, top the pool with a better head-to-head record.

Group A joint-leaders Al Ahly and Etoile Sahel have also already booked their place in the last-four.

Al Ahly, who control the summit thanks to a better goal difference, play Stade Malien in their last group game, while Etoile face fellow Tunisians Esperance.
