Major success (2-0) for the Tunisians who take the lead of Group B alone with 8 points. In this duel at the top, Esperance won with a goal from Badri in the 16th minute of play at the Olympic Stadium in El Menzah as part of the fourth day of the group stage. In stoppage time, Haythem Jouini doubled the bet in the empty Tunisian stadium, because of sanctions against the club after the bad behavior of some of its supporters.
Before the game, Patrice Milutin Sredojevi, Serbian coach of Orlando Pirates, complained of the conditions of preparation of this match. “We played a very tough match against Kaiser Chiefs before the trip to Tunisia, in addition to the fatigue of the long trip.” The South Africans have not been able to develop their football on this match.
