CAFCL: Esperance names its team to play Plateau United and gets good news about an injury

Posted by

Nabil Malooul, the head coach of Esperance of Tunisia, has chosen 24 players for the team’s CAF Champions League first round, second leg match against Plateau United of Nigeria.


After coming back from Abuja, Nigeria, on Tuesday, the four-time African champions went back to getting ready for the game.

Last Sunday, the Blood and Gold lost the first leg by a score of 2-1 at the Moshood Abiola Stadium in Abuja.

To get into the money-making group stage, the Tunisians will need to score at least two goals and not let anyone else score.


Also, Ben Romdhane is back on the team after being hurt in the first leg and missing it.

Houssem Daghoug, a key defender, left training early on Thursday because of a minor strain, but he should be fine for the game.

The game on Saturday will take place at the Stade Olympique Rades.
