Etoile du Sahel beat Al-Hilal Omdurman 3-1 at Stade Olympique de Sousse on Sunday evening.

Victory gives the two-time champions some breathing space heading into the Caf Confederations Cup quarter-final second-leg against the same opponents in Omdurman next weekend.

Zied Boughattas fired the hosts in front on the half-hour mark before Yassine Chikhaoui netted his first of two goals from the penalty spot four minutes later.

The Blue Wave scored a vital away goal in the 59th minute through Athar El Tahir to make for a nervy finish.

Chikhaoui, though, restored the hosts two-goal lead in the 81st minute, completing his brace from the spot to lead the Tunisian's to victory.
