Etoile du Sahel midfielder Maher Hannachi believes that they can qualify for the Caf Confederation Cup quarter-finals.

The Tunisian giants were beaten 2-1 by their local rivals CS Sfaxien away in a Group B match last weekend.

Sfaxien sits on top of Group B with nine points, two points ahead of Etoile.

Rangers of Nigeria have five points with Burkinabe debutants Salitas in that order on four points.

Etoile will now wrap up their Group B campaign against Salitas on Sunday.

"It’s true that we lost the match, but we still have a good chance at qualification," Hannachi told CAF.

"Next week’s game is on our pitch in front of our fans. We must turn the page on today’s game and hopefully the best is yet to come."

The top two teams from Group B will advance to the knockout stages of the continental tournament.
