FUS Rabat beat Sfaxien to win African Confederation Cup

Moroccan side FUS Rabat lift Confederation Cup trophy
FUS Rabat have won their first ever continental title

FUS Rabat became the second Moroccan team to win the African Confederation Cup after a 3-2 final second-leg win over Tunisia's CS Sfaxien.

The Tunisians were favourites after a goalless draw in the first leg in Rabat but Abdelfatteh Boukhriss gave FUS an early lead in the return leg.

Hamdi Rouid levelled and Kamel Zaiem's penalty after half-time looked to have put the home side in control.

But Mohamed Zouidi levelled on 74 minutes and won it in the 89th minute.

Boukhriss and Zouidi were unlikely match-winners as they had not previously scored for the club.

Their goals silenced a capacity crowd of 30,000, as the hosts lost at home for the first time in the competition after 23 victories and a draw.

The teams had previously met in the group stage with Sfaxien easing to a 3-0 win, and the result rounded off a miserable year for Tunisian teams in African competition.

Tunis-based Esperance were humiliated 6-1 on aggregate by Congolese side TP Mazembe in the Champions League final.

Mazembe will now meet FUS in the African Super Cup match in January.
