The Blood and Gold team are unbeaten in this competition and could extend their unbeaten run when they face ES Setif today.
The visitors are also the most flourishing team in the history of the Tunisia League, founded in 1919, they are the most popular team in Tunisia.
The Blood and Gold team have won the Tunisia Professional League title thirty (31) times, the Tunisia Cup fifteen times and Tunisia Super Cup six times. They have triumphed four times in the CAF Champions League with a successful CAF Confederation Cup eight times.
They are presently 1st on the league table with twenty-seven points in fourteen matches, although the league is still fresh.
It was a smooth sail for them In the CAF Champions League group stage as they wrapped up Group C without losing a single game, found themselves in a tougher group which consists of Belouizdad (Top of Algerian League) and fellow country club Etoile du Sahel (Third in Tunisia League with Botswana to team Jwaneng Galaxy FC.
The first leg was not as luxurious as we expected, it was a toothless goalless draw as opportunities surged from both teams but none were converted.

ES Setif are the most prosperous team in Algeria having won the Professional League 1 with a whopping eight-time record, the Algerian Cup eight times and have won the CAF Champions League two times, in 1988 and 2014.
Unfortunately, their season has been nothing but humiliating as they now sit 9th in the Algeria Professional League and are now fifteen points behind the league leader CR Belouizdad.
The Black One are on the verge of not participating in the tournament next season if they fail to make the top three, meanwhile, this tournament provides another opportunity for them provided they go forth and win the trophy, the implication being that they will qualify automatically.
Their journey to the quarterfinals wasn't bright but they managed to scale through as a second fiddle to Raja Casablanca in Group B.
They managed to hold on against Esperance in the first leg as they ranked the second best in that encounter, they will have to be at their best to salvage a point here.
They have picked up ten points from a possible eighteen in the last seven matches, scoring six and allowing opponents to get behind their net five times.
Expert Betting Tips
We have got ourselves one of the toughest matches in this phase with the Algerian top team battling it out against Tunisia's colossus in the quarterfinals, both teams met in 2014 when ES Setif won (1-2) away from home then shared the spoils at home (2-2) with the visitors.
One of the phases I'm always looking out for, the visitors are in massive form this season, nevertheless, they are playing against a team whose only hope of making it to this tournament next season is by winning it as they have dipped in the form in their local league.
Also to remind us that, Esperance ST aren't a novice to the Algerian team as they have played Belouizdad who are the best team in the Algerian League this season twice.
