On Monday, the Blood and Gold returned to training with one goal in mind: to return victorious from Cairo on Saturday evening for the second leg of the Champions League final against Al Ahly.

Despite the 0-0 draw conceded in Radès, the atmosphere was electric: seriousness, concentration, and determination were the key words of this training session. The players, aware of the historic stakes of this match, are more united and motivated than ever to lift the trophy for the fifth time in their history.

Steely Mentality and a Roaring Crowd

They know it will be tough. But anything is possible over one game. And it is with this conviction that they will approach this return leg. "We have nothing to lose, we will give our all on the pitch," said the emblematic captain Moez Ben Chérifia, a three-time winner of the C1. "We have an exceptional group of players, and I am convinced that we can bring back the victory from Cairo."

A message that resonates with the fans. Thousands of fans have rushed to travel agencies to obtain their precious sesame, a real tidal wave. An attendance record is about to be broken, proof of the immense enthusiasm surrounding this historic final. A fine wave of support that should galvanize the players.

Almost Full Squad

Espérance de Tunis will travel to Cairo tomorrow Wednesday on a special charter flight for the occasion. This measure aims to guarantee a comfortable and quick trip for the entire group, as well as to minimize the risk of disruption.

On the squad front, the news is rather reassuring. There is not too much fatigue after the first leg. Only Ben Hamida, injured last Saturday, remains uncertain. He will nevertheless make the trip with the group and a decision on his participation in the match will be taken in consultation with the medical staff before the match day.

All United for One Goal

It is therefore with a united and determined group that Espérance Sportive de Tunis is preparing to face Al Ahly. Players, staff, and supporters have only one goal in mind: to bring the cup home!

Come on Blood and Gold! We are all behind you!
