Stade du 26 Mars in Bamako will host the second leg on Saturday, 3rd September.

A 33-man contingent led by Pastor Philip Buck, chairman of the Western Football Association (WAFA), has safely in Liberia ahead of the crucial first leg.

The aggregate winner will qualify for the African Nations Championship set for Algeria in January 2023.
