The Nigerian international Anayo Iwuala, who has been playing in the front line for the second time, has distinguished himself in the Tunisian Supercup at the Rades Stadium. He helped Esperance Tunis win the trophy by scoring the only goal of the game in the 57th minute against CS Sfaxien.
Frenchman Nassim Ben Khelifa had the chance to double the lead for Esperance when he came on for Ghana's Precious Boah. Unfortunately, he lost his duel with Sfaxien goalkeeper Mohamed Hedi Gaaloul. The Sfaxians did not give up, however. Moreover, the striker Firas Chaouat almost equalized in the 82nd minute but his shot was blocked.
A week after losing the 2020 edition to US Monastir, Radhi Jaidhi's men returned to winning ways by beating their eternal rivals CS Sfaxien (1-0). It is the 6th Super cup trophy in the history of the Blood and Gold. The Tunisian champions of 2021 had previously won the editions of 1960, 1994, 2001, 2018 and 2019.
Radhi Jaidi can breathe a sigh of relief. The former Tunisian international can prepare serenely for the championship.
