Etoile advance in Champs Lge
Tunisian club Esperance
Tunisian side Etoile du Sahel reached the group stages of the Champions League after beating Maranatha Fiokpo of Togo 3-0.

Etoile qualified on a 3-0 aggregate after the first leg ended 0-0 in Lome two weeks ago.

The home side were determined to win the game and won a penalty after 15 minutes.

Seif Ghazal's resultant penalty kick was well saved by the Togolese goalkeeper but the rebound was pounced upon by Mohammed Aymen Chirmiti to give Etoile the lead.

Aymen Sultnani doubled the lead on 34 minutes before Afouane El Gharbi's goal on the stroke of full time sealed the victory.

Moroccan club FAR Rabat also advanced after beating DR Congo TP Mazembe 2-0 to qualify on a 2-1 aggregate.

The home side dominated the early exchanges but could only break the deadlock in the 63rd minute through Mohammed Bourji.

Khalid Al Marooroufi sealed qualification for the group stages of the competition after scoring with only seven minutes remaining.

Meanwhile earlier on Saturday, Esperance of Tunisia advanced despite being held 0-0 by Young Africans of Tanzania.

The result at the CCM Kirumba Stadium in Mwanza means Esperance win the tie 3-0 on aggregate.

Esperance played much of the game with 10 men after Tunisian international Lachkham Chakib was sent off half way through the first half after exchanging words with Zimbabwean referee.

Esperance played a cautious game and seemed happy to defend their 3-0 lead from the first leg.

Young Africans tried their best to attack the visitors creating numerous chances and forcing a host of corners but were unable to make their dominance count.

Gaudence Mwaikimba and Gula Joshua were guilty of squandering many of Yanga chances.
