CAF Confed: Al Hilal vs Etoile du Sahel postponed because of political turmoil in Sudan

The political turmoil in Sudan means Sunday’s Confederation Cup tie between Al Hilal and Tunisia’s Etoile du Sahel has been postponed.

Protesters have been calling for a regime change in Sudan since December.

The uncertainty around the ongoing situation has led the Confederation of African Football to postpone the quarter-final second leg tie.

No new date has been set for the Sudanese side to host Etoile, who won the first leg in Tunisia 3-1.

The first legs of the semi-finals of the tournament are due to be played on the final weekend in April.

Confederation Cup quarter-final second legs:

14 April: CS Sfaxien (1) v Nkana (2)

14 April: Zamalek (0) v Hassania Agadir (0)

14 April: RS Berkane (2) v Gor Mahia (0)
