The Punch - - SPORTS -

THE Con­fed­er­a­tion of African Foot­ball has moved the venue for Sun­day’s CAF Cham­pi­ons League first round, sec­ond leg match be­tween Plateau United and Etoile du Sa­hel of Tu­nisia.

Nige­ria Foot­ball Fed­er­a­tion di­rec­tor Bola oyey­ode told AFP the lo­ca­tion was changed from Jos to Kano fol­low­ing com­plaints by the Tu­nisian side.

“We have re­ceived a di­rec­tive from CAF that the match be­tween Plateau United and Etoile du Sa­hel will now be played in Kano, not Jos,” oyey­ode said.

Etoile were said to have com­plained about the stan­dard of the Jos sta­dium.

Etoile won the first leg in Sousse 4-2, but debu­tants Plateau can still qual­ify for the group stage of the Cham­pi­ons League should they win by at least two goals in the re­turn game.
