29-time Sudanese league winners Al Hilal Oumdurman have arrived the Garoua international airport ahead of their match day 3 clash against Cotonsport in group B, of the TotalEnergies CAF champions league.
Coach Florent Ibenge and his boys arrived at 15:00 pm local time in humid conditions in Garoua which read 37 degrees.
Al Hilal Omdurman recorded their first victory in the Champions League by beating Al Ahly of Cairo 1-0 on Saturday February 18, 2023 at the Al Hilal stadium on match day 2.
Defeated one-nil by Mamelodi Sundowns on game day one, Al Hilal's score card reads 3 points, 3 behind Mamelodi Sundowns who are on 6 points.
For Cotonsport, Hilal will be their second game having played a game less due to the postponement of match day one, courtesy of Ahly's involvement in the Club world cup. A must win for the Cameroonian side who are tailing in Group of the 2023 CAF Champions League.
Cotonsport lost 3-1 in their opener against South African giants Mamelodi Sundowns, and the game against Hilal is a chance for redemption.
Cotonsport pits Hilal at the historic Roumde Adjia stadium on Friday February 24, at 1800 GMT.
The game may look tough for the host who have just dropped points as they lost to Eding Sport 1-0 on match day 13 in Yaounde.
