Cape Town - The CAF Confederation Cup final clash between Orlando Pirates and Etoile du Sahel in Sousse, Tunisia will go ahead as planned, but with an earlier kick-off time, according to the Confederation of African Football.

This after Tunisia's President, Beji Caid Essebsi, declared a state of emergency in the wake of Tuesday's terrorist attack in Sousse, which claimed the lives of at least 13 people.

However, CAF says their plans to host the second-leg tie on Sunday are on course, despite the recent attack.

"We are in touch with the Tunisia FA and authorities and for the time being there is no change to the initial schedule," CAF told the BBC.

"A statement will be issued if there is an update."

Originally scheduled for 20:30 (SA time), the match will now kick off at 16:00 (SA time).
