According to a note from the Angolan Football Federation (FAF), which ANGOP had access, the match was transferred to that place as the “Sambilas” players requested, who will play as hosts, and with the Huilanos consent.

The match did not happen at the planned date because of the absence of an ambulance at Coqueiros stadium, whereby they were supposed to play.

Progresso do Sambizanga is on the 14th position of the classification table, with eight points, against 18 points of the Desportivo in fifth. 1º de Agosto lead the tournament with 27 points.
