CAF Champions League: Sunshine plays draw with Etoile to remain in contention

Sunshine Stars are back in contention in the race for the CAF Champion League title as they booked the semi-final place after the club held Etoile du Sahel to a 0-0 draw in Tunisian Mediterranean resort Sousse during the weekend.

Stars, playing in the premier African club competition for the first time, made a disastrous start in Group A two weeks ago by losing 2-0 at home against defending champions Esperance of Tunisia. Former title holders Etoile launched their mini-league campaign with a 1-0 victory over AS0 Chlef in Algeria and will regard the Sunshine result as two points dropped.

Esperance lead the standings after match day 2 with six points followed by Etoile with four and Sunshine with one while Chiefs are pointless as the four teams pursue a top-two finish and a semi-finals place.
