CS Sfaxien play host to Tunisian rivals Etoile du Sahel in a crunch Group B Caf Confederations Cup clash at Stade Taïeb Mhiri in Sfax on Sunday evening.

Kick-off is at 18h00 CAT.

The hosts currently sit a point behind their rivals heading into this weekend's round of fixtures, having played to three successive draws following their 1-0 win over Etoile in the reverse fixture earlier this year.

Aymen Harzi scored the only goal of the game for the Juventus of the Arabs in Sousse, but the three-time champions failed to build on that win. A 1-1 draw against Enugu Rangers was followed by successive 0-0 draws against Burkina Faso club side Salitas.

In contrast, the Red and White head into the fixture on the back of two successive wins against the Flying Antelopes of Nigeria - the last an impressive 2-0 win in Enugu.

The Tunisian rivals currently occupy second and fourth spot respectively in the Tunisian Ligue 1 and one feels that victory for either will not only come as a boost to their continental hopes - the two clubs are the most successful in the CAF CC with five wins between them - but also on the domestic front.
