Four Tunisian football clubs are playing this weekend in the return leg of matches to decide who will progress to the final eight in two different African Continental tournaments.

On Friday, L’Etoile Sportive du Sahel (ESS) faces Rwanda Army in the Olympic stadium of Sousse at 4pm. L’Esperance Sportive de Tunis (EST) will also host Brikama United Football Club from Gambia in the Olympic Staduim of Rades. Both of Friday’s matches are to determine quarterfinal berths in the African Champions League Cup.

On Saturday, Le Club Sportif Sfaxien (CSS) meets with Congolese Leopards at Tayyeb Mhiri stadium in Sfax at 4pm. One hour later, Club Africain (CA) will face Ethiopian club Saint George in Tunis’ El-Menzah stadium. Saturday’s games also decide the final eight of the African Union Cup.

 Tunisian clubs earned reassuring results during the away leg two weeks ago. ESS, EST, and CA all tied their opponents 0-0, 1-1, and 1-1 respectively, while CSS defeated the Congolese Leopards 2-1.

Tunisian football clubs enjoy a solid reputation in Africa and have won a number of African Cups and championships. ESS was the first Tunisian football club to win the new version of the Champions League Cup in 2007. Tunisian teams have also represented the African continent on two occasions at the Club World Cup. ESS first competed in the prestigious tournament, held in Japan, and then EST in December 2007 and 2011 respectively.
