CS SFAXIEN (4th)
Last five matches: DWLWL
After a disappointing result against ES Metlaoui that saw them surrender to a 2-1 loss, they quickly need to adjust and see if they can get a much more positive outcome against the league leader.
It's not going to come susceptible, they have to work hard, maybe sitting back and hoping they hit them on the counter.
The league is still open to anyone and three points here might do some magic in the long run.
ESPÉRANCE TUNIS (1st)
Last five matches: WLWWD
Incredible performances both home and abroad and their coach could be dreaming of doing the double after all. They are leading both the local league and the CAF Championship table and up next is a fellow counterpart who are solid at home.
They have to settle for a draw against ES Hammam Sousse after spurning several opportunities to take the lead. That might be a result of tired legs from the previous champion's league match.
They will go again when they face their closest rival in match week 9, they have played four matches away from home this season and two have resulted in a win while a draw and a loss were recorded.
