Rivers United will play their second leg CAF Confederation Cup tie against South African club, Bloemfontein Celtic in Benin Republic.

The game originally fixed for January 6 is now rescheduled for Saturday, January 23.

The January 6 game could not hold since the NFF were unable to secure a waiver from the Federal Government for the traveling Celtic delegation.

Due to COVID-19 concerns, incoming passengers from places like South Africa are required for a mandatory quarantine period and the NFF could not get a waiver for Celtics.

Rivers United already have a 2nil away win from the first leg and will be looking at completing the job and progressing to the next round where they will face fellow NPFL team Enyimba international of Aba for a ticket to CAF confederations cup group stage.
