Etoile du Sahel head coach Roger Lemerre says CAF Confederation Cup B remains open.
Tunisian giants Etoile secured a 2-0 win over Nigerian side Enugu Rangers at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium in Nigeria last weekend.
The win took Etoile to the top of the table with seven points from four matches after their local rivals CS Sfaxien were held to a goalless draw in Burkina Faso by Salitas in the other Group B match.
Sfaxien are now second on the table with six points, while Rangers are third with four points and Salitas with just three points occupy the fourth position.
“It was a tough match against a very good side, Rangers who failed to take their chances while we took our own,” Lemerre said.
“Any team can still qualify for the quarter-finals.”
Etoile will now take on rivals Sfaxien in their penultimate Group B match at the Stade Taib Mhiri on Sunday.
