TP Mazembe wins first CAF Confederation Cup


DR Congo’s TP Mazembe has won the 2016 CAF Confederation Cup after beating Algeria’s MO Bejaia 4-1 at home on Sunday to secure the African Confederation Cup for the first time.

Zambian international Rainford Kalaba led TP Mazembe to their first ever CAF Confederations honours, scoring twice, with Merveille Bope and Jonathan Bolingi adding a goal each. The Algerian outfit netted a consolation goal through Sofiane Khadir late in the game. The first leg tie had ended 1-1, giving TP Mazembe a 5-2 aggregate win to set up a CAF Super Cup meeting with CAF Confederation Cup winners, South Africa’s Mamelodi Sundowns, next February.
