Al Masry crash out of Confederation Cup after heavy defeat to AS Vita
Both sides drew 0-0 in Port-Said, which meant that Al Masry needed to win by any score or at least draw 1-1 to qualify for the final of the competition.
However six minutes into the game, Emomo Eddy Ngoyi opened the scoring for the hosts, converting a corner with a header.
Ahmed Gomaa had the chance to score the equaliser in the 16th minute, but his shot was well saved by the AS Vita goalkeeper.
Al Masry thought they had equalised through Mohamed Koffi, but the goal was ruled out for offside, before Emomo Ngoyi scored his side’s second of the game with a powerful shot in the 32nd minute.
The Port-Said based club continued to miss a handful of opportunities through Griendo, Islam Issa, and Ahmed Gomaa, but they failed to convert their chances.
The hosts severely punished them with two late goals through former Wadi Degla forward Jean-Marc Makusu and Mukoko Batezadio in the 75th and 94th minutes.
Vita will now face Moroccan side Raja Club Athletic in final after they overcame Nigerian club Enyimba 3-1 on aggregate.
