The Brewers will be in Tunisia in search of a result that will push them to the group stage of the inter-club competition

After a goalless first leg at the Nyayo National Stadium, the Kenyan giants are faced with the challenge of looking for a win or a scoring draw in order to reach the group stage for the first time ever.

  • Joshua Ibrahim of Tusker.

    The Tanzanian scored against Arta Solar 7 in the Caf Champion League preliminary round as he started life at the Kenyan club on a positive note.

    He has also scored in the Premier League and continues to be the most dependable goalscorer for the Brewers. Sfaxien must be alert if they are to avert every threat Joshua will pose to them.

  • Emery Mvuyekure of Tusker.

    The Rwandan goalkeeper is one of the experienced players at Tusker and his regular involvement with Amavubi in the World Cup qualifiers gives him an upper hand over his club rivals.

    His experience especially at the international level means he is capable of dealing with any threat posed by rivals and Sfaxien will have a difficult time if Robert Matano fields him.

  • Tusker's Eugene Asike and Timothy Otieno.

    His partnership with Kalos Kirege is turning into a solid defensive wall.

    The Kenyan has demonstrated his capability to deal even with the most lethal attackers as his contribution was key for Tusker when they won the Premier League. 

    The play-off duel is another opportunity for him to show his worth with top-notch performance.

  • Shami Kibwana of Tusker vs Arta Solar.

    He is growing into a midfield maestro for Matano as he has started on a regular basis across all competitions. 

    The former Kakamega Homeboyz star can link up with the attacking line quite efficiently and is also quick in dropping back to offer more defensive cover when they are under siege.

  • Humphrey Mieno of Tusker.

    Although he was substituted in the second half during the first leg at Nyayo Stadium, Mieno's ability to deal with aerial threats are traits that will give Tusker an added advantage during Sunday's showdown.

    Tusker need to create as many set pieces and corner situations as possible if they are to make maximum use of Mieno's aerial ability to torment the rival.
