After turning the page on the Champions League, Espérance de Tunis is now fully focused on the Ligue 1 championship. There are three decisive days left to play, each one more crucial than the last, in order to snatch the 2023/24 league title. Tonight, the Blood and Gold will face Club Africain in the capital derby, a match that could be a decisive turning point before the final clash against US Monastir.

Miguel Cardoso's men know that a victory in this derby could give them a serious option for the title. The pressure is palpable, but the Portuguese coach prefers to approach this match with a balanced perspective. "Since I arrived, every game I've been told that this is the most important game of the season. I've realized that every game is crucial and we have to win them all," Cardoso said. "[...] I want this championship. I'm looking forward to winning my first title with Espérance."

For the fans, this derby is always of particular importance, regardless of the stakes for the two teams. However, the absence of the Blood and Gold fans from the stadium adds an extra layer of challenge for the players. But there is no doubt that the fans will be wholeheartedly behind their players to push them to victory.

All the ingredients are therefore in place for an exciting match. Good luck to our valiant Blood and Gold!
