Etoile Sahel revived their hopes of a Confederation Cup semifinal spot with a slender 1-0 win away from home over Al-Ahli Tripoli in a Group B match at the Stade Chedli Zouiten on Tuesday night.
A single goal from Ahmed Akaichi in the 70th minute handed Etoile Sahel their second win in four games which sees them up to seven points and joint Group B leaders alongside FUS Rabat.
FUS Rabat, however, have only played three games and are in action on Wednesday night in Group B at home against Kawkab Marrakech.
The loss for Al-Ahli Tripoli is their fourth in as many games and sees them propping up the bottom of Group B with zero points, behind Kawkab Marrakech who have six points.
Etoile Sahel will now wait with baited breath to see what happens between FUS Rabat and Kawkab Marrakech on Wednesday night, hoping the latter suffers a loss.
Etoile Sahel will next be in action in the Confederation Cup on August 13 at home to Kawkab Marrakech while Al-Ahli Tripoli will host FUS Rabat on August 12.
Al-Ahli Tripoli (0) 0
Etoile Sahel (0) 1 (Akaichi 70’)
