HistoryEdit

 
Club africain in 1934

The derbies between the Club Africain and Esperance sportive de Tunis (EST) start during the season 1923-1924, when the African Club joins the EST in second series (promotion 1): the first official derby, which takes place on March 23, 1924 at the Ariana on behalf of the fifth day of the championship of the second series, is won by the African Club (3-0). Tunisia's first Cup derby, which takes place on October 10, 1926 at the Vélodrome on the occasion of the round of 32, is won by the African Club (1-0). In the context of the Tunisian Cup competitions, six derbys opposed the two teams before independence: one is won by the African Club in 1926, one ends with a draw and four by a victory of the Espérance sportive de Tunis, including two in the semifinals, in 1939 and 1947-1948.

The two teams entered into direct competition in the spring of 1933 and are now playing in the same division, with the exception of one season, sporting competition and competition between them taking over any desire to merge. It is at this period that, competition compels, are forged images truncated or at least oriented or manipulated of a city club and aristocrat for the African Club, solidly anchored in his stronghold of Bab Jedid, in opposition to his opponent being more popular and going to settle in Bab Souika. If this vision develops from the profiles of the leaders of the two clubs, the clubs certainly have more beldis among their ranks, no basis either supports or confirms this difference. On the contrary, the players of the African Club have, from time immemorial, of diverse social and geographical origins and it is the same for their supporters. The African Club and the EST play together in the elite from the 1937-1938 season, the EST having secured its accession to the first series at the end of the 1935-1936 season, the African Club l having joined a year later. The first derby in Ligue I took place on September 26, 1937, during the second day of the 1937-1938 season, and ended with a draw (1-1).

one club to anotherEdit

Due to intense rivalry between the two clubs, few players have dared to play for both the African Club and Esperance Tunis during their career. Apart from Mohamed Bachtobji, Mohamed Ali Yaakoubi and Ali Abdi, all the others have passed through other clubs, whether in Tunisia or abroad, before playing with the Club Africain or Espérance sportive de Tunis.

Club Africain then Espérance de TunisEdit

 
Seifeddine Akremi

Espérance de Tunis then Club AfricainEdit
