Etoile Sportive du Sahel are hosting Young Africans in the Confederation Cup on Saturday, in the return leg of their last 16 tie.

The Tunisians secured a precious 1-1 draw in Dar Es Salaam in the first leg, with a 47th minute effort from Med Amine Ben Amor cancelling Haruna Niyonzima’s early opener from the penalty spot.

And coach Faouzi Benzarti’s men will now bank on their impressive home record to extend their continental journey in front of their fans.

Etoile’s last home defeat came on 30 November 2014, with the Sousse-based outfit currently enjoying a nine-match unbeaten run through all competitions.

However, the Tanzanians will be looking to cause an upset in Tunisia, knowing that they must either win or secure a draw while scoring at least twice to advance.

But Young Africans have failed to get a result on the road so far in the competition, suffering away defeats to Botswana Defence Force and FC Platinum.

The game will kick off at Stade Olympique de Sousse at 20h00 CAT on Saturday.
