Burundi/Kenya: Burundi Officials to Handle Tusker's Champs League Tie

Burundian officials will be at the centre of Saturday's CAF Champions League second round tie between Tusker and St Michel from Seychelles.

The trio of centre referee--Gasingwa Eric, first assistant Ramadhan Nijimbere, second assistant Emmanuel Ndikumasabo and fourth official Pacifique Ndabihawe--are expected in the country this afternoon.

Tanzanian match commissioner Leslie Liunda arrives tomorrow. St. Michel are also expected in the country where they face a huge task of overturning a 4-1 deficit against the local champions.

Winners of the two-legged encounter will face Egypt's Al Ahly in the next round. Tickets for the match go on sale tomorrow, where a seat in the VIP stand will cost Sh500 and Sh200 for terraces.
