It has been a long rivalry between two of the continent’s giants, Tunisia’s Esperance Sportive de Tunis and Egypt’s Zamalek Sporting Club. But this year will witness new chapters in their story, with three intriguing encounters in less than a month. They have been drawn against each other in the 2019/20 Total CAF Champions League quarterfinal, but before that, they will face off in the 2020 Total CAF Super Cup match in Doha, Qatar.
