The wide player could only manage 14 minutes of action as Anice Badri and Fakhreddine Ben Youssef helped the Carthage Eagles salvage a 2-2 draw against the reigning European champions in Braga.

The 20-year-old contributed three goals and an assist in 35 games for Lucien Favre's side in the just-concluded Ligue 1 season.

Srarfi made Tunisia's 29-man provisional squad for the 2018 Fifa World Cup.
