The 9th round of the Tunisian National Soccer League Championship will finish today after two postponed games are played, according to Al-Sahafa daily. One match is between Al-Malab Al-Tunisi and Al-Taraji and the second is between Al-Najem Al-Saheli and Olympic Club. The two games were delayed because Al-Taraji and Al-Najem played in the final rounds of the African Cup Winners' Cup.
Al-Taraji appears to have the upper hand over Al-Malab Al-Tunisi. The team not only played well in the African finals, but has yet to lose a game in the Tunisian league. Still, Al-Malab Al-Tunisi will try to capitalize on the absence of three key Al-Taraji players: Al-Waaer, Al-Qabsi and Badra. The team will also try to take advantage of Al-Taraji's focus on the African Cup Finals. In the second game, Al-Najem Al-Saheli is undefeated and recently won the African Confederation Cup. They will host Olympic Club.
