BBC Sport, Tunis
Tunisian club Etoile Sahel have opted to train away from their base in Sousse for the first leg of the Champions League final against Nigeria's Enyimba.
Camping in the coastal town of Hammamet, the team makes a two-hour round trip to the Rades Stadium in Tunis for their daily workouts.
Club president Othman Jenayeh said the change of base has helped his players prepare for what should be a tough encounter against the defending champions.
"It's better for our preparations to be away from the thousands of fans we have at home," he told BBC Sport.
"In Sousse it would be very difficult to maintain concentration and train properly.
"If we are there, the fans are always asking for tickets, wanting to speak or have their photographs taken with the players.
"It can be very distracting."
Emeka Opara, Etoile's Nigerian striker, said the decision to train in Tunis was a fortuitous one.
"We have been sleeping in the same place, as well as eating and training together," he said.
"We have become like one family and we believe that we are going to win this cup."
Etoile's Nigerian goalkeeper Austin Ejide echoed his compatriot's comments.
"We have to concentrate and training in such a calm place as Rades is good," he told BBC Sport.
Saturday's game kicks off at 1600 GMT, with the return leg in Abuja on 12 December.
