DR Congo’s TP Mazembe were pelted with bottles as they arrived in Sudan for an African Champions League against Al Merreikh.
The squad have now been told to remain in their hotel for their own safety, but hope to train on Friday.
Despite the problems the club’s vice-president Mohammed Kamwamya remained defiant when he talked to the BBC.
“Whatever they’ve done will not matter to TP Mazembe, we know it’s all about the 90 minutes on the pitch,” he said.
Four-time African champions Mazembe hold a 2-0 lead from the first leg in Lubumbashi a fortnight ago.
The winners of the tie will qualify for the group stages of the Champions League while the losers drop into the Confederation Cup.
Another six of the eight teams for the group stages will be decided this weekend after the third round second leg games.
The final spot will be decided on Tuesday as Egypt‘s Al Ahly host Stade Malien in a postponed match.

Malien won the first leg 1-0 thanks to a last-minute goal from Lamine Diawara.
