Two-time Caf Confederations Cup champions Etoile du Sahel rallied after going a goal down to beat Enugu Rangers 2-1 in a Group B clash at Stade Olympique de Sousse on Sunday evening.
The Flying Antelopes raced into an early lead thanks to Bright Silas 15th minute goal as they set course for an upset in Sousse.
Etoile du Sahel, though, proved their mettle as Mohamed Msakni levelled matters for the hosts in the 35th minute before Ben Aziza completed the comeback in the 64th minute of the match, firing home to lead the hosts to all three points.
Victory sends the Red and White up to four points, level with Enugu and one behind record three-time CAFCC champions and Tunisian rivals: CS Sfaxien. Burkina Faso' Salitas prop the group.
Enugu will play host to Etoile in the reverse fixture in Nigeria on the 3rd of March.
