TP Mazembe  Confederation Cup Winner 2016


The group stage of the Confederation Cup has expanded from eight teams to 16 this year

JS Kabylie of Algeria are aiming to overturn a 2:0 deficit on Sunday when they host Confederation Cup holders TP Mazembe of the DR Congo.

The two sides are meeting in the second leg of their play-off to decide who advances to the expanded group phase of the tournament.

The Algerians will be looking to striker Mohamed Boulaouidet who has rescued his club in two earlier qualifying victories.

He scored twice in a 4:0 preliminary-round rout of Liberians Monrovia Club Breweries that overturned a shock three-goal first-leg loss in west Africa.

Then in the last-32 against Etoile of Congo Brazzaville, he snatched the only goal of the tie in the final minute of the match.

For the second successive season, Mazembe failed to qualify for the Champions League group stage and were demoted to Africa's second tier competition.

The Congolese boast a multi-national squad and Zambia midfielder Nathan Sinkala and Mali centre-back Salif Coulibaly scored against Kabylie in Lubumbashi.
