Etoile du Sahel will be desperate to ignite their Caf Confederations Cup campaign when they play host to an in form Enugu Rangers side at Stade Olympique de Sousse on Sunday evening.

Kick-off is at 21h00 CAT.

The Tunisians have accumulated a mere point after two rounds of fixtures - following a 1-0 loss at home to rivals CS Sfaxien with a disappointing 0-0 draw away to Salitas in Ouagadougou last time out.

Etoile, who are two-time champions of Africa's second-tier club cup competition (2006,2015), will be desperate to right the wrongs with victory this weekend as they eye a place in the knockout stages of the competition.

The Red and White head into the clash on the back of a 2-0 win over Kairouan in the Tunisian league. They trail top of the table Bizertin by four points in what is a hotly contested league.

Enugu head to Sousse in good spirits having amassed a five game unbeaten run across all competitions, that includes a hard fought 1-1 draw in Sfax last time out in the CAF CC.

Pape Sane scored what could prove to be an important goal for the Flying Antelopes in the greater scheme of things following Alaeddine Marzouki's opener. The Nigerians sit top of Group B heading into this weekend's round of fixtures.

Enugu got their campaign up and running with a 2-0 win over Burkina Faso club Salitas on matchday one.

Sfaxien will play host to Salitas in the other Group B fixture in a game that will kick-off three hours prior to the fixture in Sousse.
