CAF Confederation Cup: MO Béjaïa, TP Mazembe set up final clash
MO Béjaïa and TP Mazembe both qualified for the 2016 CAF Confederation Cup final with away-goal victories over FUS Rabat and Etoile du Sahel respectively.
TP Mazembe eliminate Etoile du Sahel after shutout
2015 CAF Champions League champions TP Mazembe hosted the earlier of the two return leg matches on Sunday, as they took on reigning Tunisia Ligue 1 champions Etoile du Sahel. Both sides looked to build on a 1-1 draw in Sousse, when captain Hamza Lahmar’s goal for the North Africans was cancelled out by a Roger Assale equaliser.
Ultimately the DR Congo giants achieved the result they needed, after both sides failed to score over the course of 90 minutes and stoppage time.
MO Béjaïa leave it late, edge heartbroken hosts FUS Rabat
Much like the first leg, the match was extremely tight for the entirety of the first half and both teams could not be separated until the 73rd minute, when centre-back Mohamed Nahiri pounced on a defensive lapse inside the area to rifle home for the opener.
As things stood, the hosts were going through to the final, and manager Hoalid Regragui made defensive changes accordingly.
Béjaïa would not be denied however, and Faouzi Rahal scored in the dying seconds of the match to seal a dramatic victory on away goals for his side, as the Stade de FUS fell silent.
The Algerians will be playing at home in the first leg of the final on October 28, before TP Mazembe host the second leg on November 4.
