The Muscovites of AS Vclub meet the Tunisians of Esperance Sportive in Tunis, this Friday, December 27, in Radès, Tunisia, for the 3rd day of the group stage of the Champions League of the Confederation of African Football (CAF).
After a failed start, conceding two defeats in two outings, the Black Dolphins of Kinshasa must stop the bleeding against the title holder of the most prestigious interclub competition of the CAF, Esperance of Tunis. This presents itself as a difficult mission, but not impossible for Florent Ibenge's men in search of automatisms to take off in this so-called "Death" group.
Beaten in turn by the Kabylie Youth Sports (JSK) and Raja Casablanca, Vclub seems to be jeopardising its chances of qualifying for the rest of the competition. The Kinois club faces a team from Esperance that returns from a disappointing participation in the Club World Cup.
It is worth pointing out that the "Bana Vea" are in last position in Group D with no unity while the Esperantists dominate the debate in this group with 6 points in their gibecière.
