Etoile needed the win to recover from their disastrous 4-1 against Club Africain in the Tunisian Cup final on Sunday.
During the first half both teams failed to have any clear opportunities but Etoile had more possession. Just one minute into the second half Tunisian striker Alaya Brigui scored his side’s first goal.
Ten minutes later Marei scored his side’s second goal and his second one of the season. By doing so he has now five goals to his name across all competitions with Etoile.
In the dying minutes of the game Zambian striker Lazarous Kambole scored his side’s only goal of the game.
Following this result Etoile now sit on top of Group D with four points. Their next game will be against South African side Swallows FC.
