Tunisia’s Club Sportive Sfaxien on Friday advanced to the last four of the 2014 CAF Champions League after they defeated hosts Ahly Benghazi of Libya 1-0.

Sfaxien have now recorded 10 points from five matches, two points more than Algeria’s Entente Setif, who welcome bottom team Esperance of Tunisia on Saturday.

Mathematically, neither Ahly Benghazi, who are on four points, nor Esperance can match the 10-point tally already compiled by Sfaxien.

Sfaxien match winner in Tunis, the adopted home of the Libyans, was scored in the 67th minute through Ferjani Sassi off a pass by Maher Hannachi.

The first half finished scoreless with CSS dominating and creating several chances.

CSS also won the reverse fixture at home 3-1.

The Tunisian champions will battle local rivals Esperance in a final group game on August 23 that will now determine if they win the group.
