Unbeaten Etoile missing strikers for African Cup game

September 7, 2006

JOHANNESBURG, Sept 7 (Reuters) - Etoile Sahel will be without injured strikers Mohamed Selliti and Dos Santos as they seek a third successive win in the African Confederation Cup on Sunday.

The Tunisian club host FC St Eloi Lupopo of the Democratic Republic of Congo in a Group B tie in Sousse aiming to maintain their 100 percent record at the halfway stage of the league phase of the competition.

Compatriots Esperance, seeking to keep up the pressure in Group B, will have Ahmed Ben Yahia and Zied Bhairi back from injury for their game against Renaicimiento of Equatorial Guinea.

The game in Tunis has been switched from Saturday to Sunday because of the anticipated late arrival of the side from the small central African nation.

Angolan clubs Petro Atletico and InterClube both travel to Morocco this weekend in Group A.

InterClube, who have lost their first two group games, play defending champions Royal Armed Forces in Rabat on Saturday.

Petro Atletico, who share the group lead with the Moroccan military club, meet Olympique Khouribga on Sunday.

It is the first group game outside of Angola for Petro, who have several players joining the side directly from the national team after their African Nations Cup qualifier in Swaziland at the weekend.
