Al Merreikh have traveled here for an interesting CAF Champions League fight against Vita Club. Prepare for the match with this cup preview!

There should be plenty of energy on the pitch in this game, as both sides have had time to recuperate from their last game. Let's hope both teams are ready to give it all.

Al Merreikh have a very long trip to this away game, as there's more than 4900 kilometers in distance to cover. This could prove a challenge, at least for the supporters.

Vita Club form and stats

Last season their CAF Champions League adventure ended in the group stage.

Home games in the Super Ligue have been a walk in the park for Vita Club so far, with 23 points won from 9 matches; 7 wins, 2 draws and 0 losses. This match is a CAF Champions League match, and the hometeam has the total statistics 2 wins, 2 draws and 3 losses in this competition. Vita has a nice streak going on as they have played 29 consecutive leaguegames without losing (regardless of home/away). They are keen to extend their tally, a streak that began after the Nyuki defeat 520 days ago. After failing to beat Renaissance here at Stade des Martyrs de la Pentecôte, Vita has put together a very nice winning streak on their own turf with five wins in a row.

The Vita fans would probably like to see some more goals scored at their own stadium in the league, the tally being 13 in 9 matches. Defensively Vita have been outstanding, conceding less than half a goal on average per home game in the league (3 in 9 games). For more goal stats, check the Statistics tab above. It's worth mentioning that 5 of these goals has been conceded in their last 3 home matches.

Al Merreikh form and stats

Last season their CAF Champions League adventure ended in the preliminary round.

Al Merreikh's travelling support has been rewarded for their time and money so far this season, having witnessed Al Merreikh collect 14 points from their 6 away matches in the Sudan Premier League. 4 victories and 2 draws have created these points (and only 0 defeats). When we have look at the CAF Champions League statistics, we find 2W-3D-4L. This is both home and away. Things are running smoothly for Merreikh who hasn't tasted defeat in their last 27 matches, regardless of venue and tournament. Their last defeat was against Al Ahly Shendi. The away team travel with confidence. Not since the Al Ahly Shendi game have they lost an away game, meaning Al Merreikh has taken points from twelve away matches in a row.

Merreikh's last game was the home draw against Al Ahly (2-2).

Drawing 2-2 against Al Ahly after 90 minutes last time out was very disappointing after leading the match 2-0. Their manager L. Clark needs to evaluate why the team couldn't defend their result.

The travelling fans enjoy Merreikh's attacking play in away games, having scored 11 goals in 6 league matches away. It's been trouble in front of goal recently, as only 1 of these goals has been scored in their last three away matches. Merreikh are tighter than a frog's bottom, as only 3 away goals have been conceded so far. It's worth mentioning that 8 of these goals has been conceded in their last 3 away matches.

Head 2 Head

Al Merreikh - Vita 1-4 was the story when these teams last met, earlier this season.
