Mouin Chaabani, the coach of Tunisias Esperance, is considering not paying three players from his team against MCA, fearing that they will receive a second warning.
Esperance is preparing to face MCA in the final round of the African Champions League groups next Saturday night.
Tunisias Foot24 website stated that Mouin Chabani, the coach of Esperance, is considering not paying Hamdi Al-Naqaz, in addition to the main center duo, Mohamed Ali Bin Ramadan and Ghaylan Al-Shaalali, for fear of receiving the second warning.
Each player from the previous trio received a warning during the group stage of the CAF Champions League, and Al-Shaalali fears the absence of any of them in the 8th round of suspension.
The Tunisian website also confirmed the absence of the main defender, Mohamed Ali Al-Yaqoubi, from facing Mouloudia, after he received a second warning in the previous Senegalese meeting Tuncheth.
Zamalek will play against Senegalese Toungith on Saturday, at the same time as the Esperance and Mouloudia match in Rades.
Zamalek needs to beat Tounjeth, with Esperance defeating Mouloudia in order to ensure qualification for the round of 8.
