CAF Champions League: Tunisian football titans Esperance de Tunis aims to reignite African dominance


As Esperance Sportive de Tunis celebrates an impressive 105 years of existence, the Tunisian football giants are not only reveling in their rich history but are also setting their sights on reclaiming continental glory. With four CAF Champions League titles to their name, Esperance is hungry to add a fifth to their illustrious trophy cabinet, and this season presents the perfect opportunity.

It’s been nearly half a decade since Esperance last tasted success in the CAF Champions League, and for a club of their stature, this drought is unacceptable. With the two-legged Quarter-Finals clash against former champions Asec Mimosas of Cote d’Ivoire looming, Esperance is determined to kickstart their journey back to the top of African football.

Founded in 1919, Esperance boasts a legacy that spans over a century, making them the oldest football club in Tunisia. Their dominance in local competitions is unparalleled, with a staggering 32 league titles, 15 Tunisian Cup victories, and six Tunisian Super Cup triumphs under their belt.

On the continental stage, Esperance’s pedigree is equally impressive, with four CAF Champions League titles and one CAF Super Cup to their credit. However, it’s been too long since they’ve added to their continental honors, and they’re eager to change that narrative.

Under the guidance of newly appointed Portuguese coach, Miguel Cardoso, Esperance aims to reignite their championship aspirations. With Cardoso’s wealth of experience and tactical acumen, coupled with the leadership of key player Mohamed Amin Tougai anchoring the defense, Esperance is poised for success.

As they prepare to face Asec Mimosas in the Quarter-Finals, Esperance knows that reclaiming continental glory won’t be easy. But with their rich history, talented squad, and unwavering determination, they believe that this could be the season they once again etch their name in African football folklore.
