However, the match will now be played on October 12 at the Ahmadu Bello Stadium in Kaduna, CAF announced on its official website.

The return ‎leg tie will be played in Tunisia instead of Algeria on October 15.

Referee Jean Jacques Ndala Ngambo, from DR Congo, will be the man in the middle and he will be assisted by his fellow country men, Olivier Safari Kabene and Nabina Blaise Sebutu.
