Junior Ajayi put the Red Devils ahead when Ali Maâloul swung a low cross to midfielder El-Shahat, who fired a right-foot shot saved by Etoile du Sahel’s defender and Ajayi slotted the rebound into the empty net in the 32nd minute.

El Shenawy was brought into action for the first time in the 6th minute as his save denied Karim Laribi’s powerful shot.

Fourteen minutes later, Laribi unleashed an excellent shot, but El Shenawy made a brilliant save to prevent the ball from getting into his net.
