In their second appearance in the tournament, the Egyptian side was taken aback by a goal from Singida Big Stars. Despite making several attempts to equalize, Modern Future's strikers lacked precision in the final touch. To advance to the group stage, the Egyptian side will need to display more clinical finishing.
Singida Big Stars, who are taking part in the CAF Confederation Cup for the first time in their history, will rely on their defensive discipline and counter-attacking strategy to preserve their lead.
In the previous edition of the tournament, Modern Future advanced to the group stage and finishing fourth in Group C with just four points.
