The club which was founded in 1958, home ground at the Stade 8 Mai 1945, have won the Algerian Ligue 1 eight times, Algerian Cup a record of eight times, Super Cup twice, CAF Champions League twice, CAF Super Cup once (the first Algerian team to achieve the feet) and a host of Arab tournaments are regarded as one of the most successful clubs in the country although they missed out the opportunity of clinching the CAF Confederations Cup which could’ve made them one of the few teams to have won the three major Caf’s club continental trophy.
ES Sétif will on Tuesday welcome USM Alger to the Stade 8 Mai 1945 Stadium as they continue their push for 9th Algerian Ligue 1 title.
