VIDEO: Marei scores brace, assists in ES Sahel victory over US Monastir
It didn’t take long before the hosts opened the scoring, as after only four minutes from the start Maher Hannachi launched a perfect cross for Amr Marei, who netted the first for his side.
Three minutes later, Marei was again under the spot after he received the ball on his chest and led a dangerous attack, before offloading Feras Ben Arabi, who fed Marei back inside the box to head in his second of the game.
On the 20th minute mark, Feras Ben Arabi extended the lead for L’Etoile as Amr Marei returned the assist with a delightful pass to the Tunisian, making it 3-0.
Rafik Kabou pulled one back for the visitors after he capitalized on the defenders’ mistake and collected the ball inside the box to reduce the lead to 3-1.
However, Hannachi managed to kill the comeback hopes for the Monastir-based side as he netted the fourth from a freekick.
An unexpected scenario arose as the US Monastir managed to reduce the scoreline to a one-goal difference as Fedy Arfaoui and Idrissa Kouyate scored in the 64th and 75th minutes.
With less than ten minutes left, Yassine Chikhaoui rose highest to power a header beyond the goalkeeper, securing the three points for Etoile du Sahel.
Following the victory, Etoile du Sahel stand fourth in the league table with seven points, but they still have a game in hand. Their next encounter will be against Stade Gabesien on the 19th of October.
