Heitem Jouiwi’s hatrick in the 44th ,48th and 56th minute inspired the Tunisians who began the game like a house on fire .The first half was a see saw affair as both sides failed fought gallantly to get the opener bu the game went into the break at 0-0.
However upon resumption Esperance game back guns blazing as they fired from all cylinders with Jouiwi the man who also scored in Nairobi scoring three goals in less than 11 minutes.
Ghanain Harrison Aful and Idriss Mhriss added the other goals in the 54th and 74th minutes of the game as Gor Mahia defence tumbled from the marauding Esperance attackers.
