Ligue des champions | Demi-finale retour – Al Ahly-EST (Demain soir à 20h00) : L’heure de vérité !

Following the club being accosted by supporters early in the week due to a 0-1 defeat against Al Ahly in their CAF Champions League semifinal first leg, Espérance are fully focused on overturning the deficit and anger from the fans has given way to full throated support later in the week to help the Blood and Gold get the job done. La Presse reports that the main priority of EST manager Moïne Chaâbani is to find a way to get his attack firing and with multiple options, it is up to the coach to find the right combination to improve on the team’s threat to the Ahly goal that was sorely lacking last Saturday.

Tunisie Numérique states similar themes in its preview of the match, mentioning however that getting a result in Egypt is something that has been done before by EST. Twice in recent years Espérance have been able to achieve draws in Egypt, but getting a victory would truly be a substantial accomplishment as playing at home has always provided a major advantage.
