Tunisia giants Esperance Sportive de Tunis have continued to dominate the local football league with their 30th triumph.
This is after they were crowned the 2019/20 season Champions on Sunday. 


Despite drawing 1-1 with CS Chebba at Rades Olympic Stadium, the Tunis based side remained in reachable at the top after taking their points tally to 55 points, nine more than their closest rivals CS Sfaxien with three games to spare.

The “Blood and Gold” side have the upper hand on head-to-head games over Sfaxien, having defeated them 2-0 in Sfax and settling for a barren stalemate in Rades.

It was Esperance’s fourth league title in a row, having been crowned champions the past three seasons.

The four times African Champions have now won the “Tunisian Ligue Professionelle 1” a record 30 occasions, 17 more than archrivals Club Africain who have 13 titles to their name.

Jilani Abdessalam gave the visitors Chebba the lead at the hour mark in Rades, with defender Abdelkader Bedrane restoring parity six minutes later, handing Esperance the point they needed to guarantee the trophy.


Esperance will once again represent Tunisia in next season’s Total CAF Champions League.

Sfaxien lie second on 46 points, five more than third placed Monastir with a place in the premier continental club competition at stake.
