The Confederation Cup is at the quarter-final stage

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

The Sudanese side will now 'host' Etoile, who won the first leg in Tunisia 3-1, on 22 April at Cairo's Petro Sport stadium.

The Confederation of African Football agreed to a request from Hilal to delay the quarter-final second leg tie.

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

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)
