Cape Town - The second-leg clash between Orlando Pirates and Etoile du Sahel in the CAF Confederation Cup final on Sunday has been shifted to an earlier kick-off. 

The crunch encounter was originally scheduled to take place at 20:30 (SA time), but has been rescheduled following a terrorist attack in Tunis on Tuesday which reportedly claimed the lives of 15 people.

"The final return leg of the Orange Confederation Cup 2015 between Etoile Sportive du Sahel (Tunisia) and Orlando Pirates (South Africa) will take place on Sunday, 29 November 2015 at the Olympic Stadium in Sousse at 15:00 local time," an official CAF statement read.

"The initial kick-off was 19:30 local time on the same day.

"This decision is upon a request by Etoile du Sahel submitted to the Confederation Africaine de Football (CAF) on Wednesday, 25 November 2015, in response to recent events in Tunisia, which has compelled authorities to declare a nationwide curfew.

"The decision by CAF was taken in consultation with the Fédération Tunisienne de Football and the Tunisian Ministry of Interior."

That means the encounter will start promptly at 16:00 (SA time).
