Esperance will look to their dangerous front three of Taha Yassine Khenissi, Anice Badri and Hamdou Elhouni as the Tunisian champions target a place in the semi-finals.
Meanwhile, Belouizdad need to avoid a defeat in Tunisia in order to book their place in the semi-finals for the first time in the club’s history.
