The Tunisian club have high hopes to breeze into the next stage of the Caf Confederations Cup but must first get the better of Gambia’s torchbearers Gamtel on Saturday
The North African club touched down in Western Africa, hoping to bury off the hosts who need to overturn their 4-2 loss in Tunis.
Goals from Taoufik Salhi, Taha Yassin Khenissi , Ghazi Chellouf and Taha Yassin Khenissi looked to have sealed it for CS before Gamtel’s midfielder spaghetti-legged Modou Sarr scored a brace to set up a bumpy road to the second leg for the Tunisians.
Speaking to Goal.com, a buoyant Gamtel coach Tapha Manneh said his charges will target to dent the visitors’ hopes of going into the next round.
“We are confident of ourselves and we believe we can score two goals and avoid conceding. It is our home ground,” said Manneh who led Gamtel to the Gambia FA Cup title thrice consecutively.
Manneh rested key strikers Sam Gibba and Hatab Badjie on Monday in Gamtel’s 0-0 draw with arch rivals Real de Banjul to keep them fresh for the big Confederations Cup tie.
