VIDEO: Al-Merrikh end USM Alger winning streak


CAF Club Competitions

Sudanese side brought ’s five-match winning streak in the group stage to a grinding halt, with a 1-0 home win.

The Algerians had bulldozed their way through the opposition on their way to securing first place in Group B, and despite the fact that neither side had anything to play for – Merrikh had already qualified as group runners-up by the end of matchday five – the hosts came out on top.

Didier Lebri scored the only goal of the game in the 14th minute; the Ivorian striker latched on to a through ball before finishing coolly to send the hope support into raptures.

USM Alger remain in first place with 15 points, two ahead of second-placed Al-Merrikh.
