Mamelodi Sundowns look set to face Algerian club CR Belouizdad at Mkapa Stadium in Dar es Salaam in the CAF Champions League on Sunday, 28 February.

The Tanzanian Football Federation (TFF) has agreed to the fixture but it still needs to be officially approved by CAF.

"The administration received an official correspondence from the Tanzanian Football Federation confirming its agreement to embrace the confrontation on 28 February on the main stadium in Dar es Salaam," a statement from Belouizdad read.

"Waiting for the final decision of the African Confederation Football in the coming hours.

"The administration had messaged Tanzanian authorities through the Algerian Football Federation for the possibility of the match there."

Masandawana were initially supposed to play Belouizdad at Stade du 5 Juillet 1962 in Algiers, but it was cancelled due to medical restrictions in Algeria.
