Esperance Sports Tunisia (EST) won the Tunisian Super Cup for football, for the fifth time in its history and the fourth in a row, after beating Club Sportif Sfaxien on penalties 5-4 on Sunday evening at the Olympic Stadium in Rades.
The two teams resorted to penalty kicks after the original time ended with a draw. EST succeeded in achieving the local double after winning the Tunisian League title this season.
With this victory, EST strengthened its record as the most successful team in the championship, after scoring for the fifth time in its history, two titles ahead of its closest opponents, Club African (CA) and Etoile Sportive du Sahel (ESS).
Esperance Sports was able to achieve the Tunisian Super Cup for the fourth time in a row after winning the championship with its new title for the first time in 1993 by beating Club Mostakbal Almarsaa (AS) 2-0, and the second time in front of the Sports Club in Hammam-Lif 3-1 in 2001, and in the third time against CA Bizerte 2-1 last year.
EST won the Tunisian League title in 2019-2020 season for the 13th time in its history, while Sfaxien won second place in the competition ranking.
The two teams reserved a seat in the next edition of the African Champions League.
