And 30 for Esperance de Tunis ! The blood and gold club was crowned champion of Tunisia for the thirtieth time in its rich history on Sunday evening.

The point taken in front of CS Chebba (1-1) is enough for the happiness of Mouine Chaabani’s men, who with nine lengths ahead of CS Sfaxien can no longer be reached in the lead, thanks to the results of direct confrontations.

The decisive goal was scored by Algerian defender Abdelkader Bedrane following a corner kick by his compatriot Raouf Benguit (65th).

This is the fourth consecutive national title for the double reigning African champions, eliminated this season from the Champions League at the quarter-finals stage. With a largely renewed workforce last summer, the Esperanto team has kept its supremacy in its country.

Esperance should be supported in the African Champions League by CS Sfaxien .

Two days after Faouzi Benzarti returned to the bench , 23 years after his first stint, the Southerners won the “classico” against Etoile du Sahel (2-1) and now have a five-point lead (46 against 41) on US Monastirienne, beaten on Saturday by CA Bizertin (2-1), in second place in the LP1 standings.
