The Blood and Gold arrive here with a share of the loot against Al Ahly on their home turf. Esperance ST failed to get a shot on goal despite creating two great chances.

Twenty-year-old star goalkeeper Amanallah Memmiche has already kept ten clean sheets in this tournament and is poised to win the Golden Gloves. Al Taraji is the most successful team in the Tunisian Professional League, with thirty-two one (31) league titles. They have won the Tunisian Cup fifteen times and have secured the Tunisian Super Cup six times.

In this competition, Esperance ST are unbeaten in their last nine matches and have only lost once since the campaign began.

In their previous fifteen meetings, Al Ahly have won ten, while Esperance ST have only managed one victory and four matches ended in draws. This match is the most played in the history of the competition, as they have faced each other twenty-four times.

The second leg was nothing out of this world, as the hosts played more defensively despite having more possession of the ball. Esperance ST must not concede a goal here to have any chance of advancing, while Al Ahly will use all their known offensive tactics to overcome their opponent.

Both teams have an excellent defensive record in this competition, with eighteen clean sheets between them. Esperance ST will come with their usual defensive setup, but traditions favor Al Ahly as only two of the ten previous Champions League finalists who drew 0-0 at home in the first leg lifted the trophy.

We expect a tight match with BTTS not for 1.61.

Al Ahly are the favorites to advance here after the second leg; bet on a home victory at halftime by 2.35.

Good luck!
