Etoile Sportive du Sahel will be in high spirits when they welcome Mbabane Swallows in their fourth CAF Champions League, Group D match on Friday.
This encounter will be staged at the Stade Olympique de Sousse in Tunisia at 21:00 (CAT).
The North African giants are motivated by their 3-0 win over the Birds from the Kingdom of Swaziland last week.
Following that massive win away, they now sit at the top of the group with seven points from three matches so far.
Etoile have wins over Zambia’s Zesco United and over the Swazis, plus a draw against Primeiro Do Agosto of Angola.
However, with the Swazi giants occupying the second pot in the group, the match could go either way on Friday.
A look at Thabo Vilakati’s troops, Swallows sit second with four points in the group with a win and a draw so far.
They beat the Angolans 1-0 at home back in May, but opened their assignments with a 1-1 draw against Team Ya Ziko from Zambia.
A win for the Southern Africans will see them moving level with Sahel on seven points, but the two sides will be separated on goal difference.
