2nd legs

Club Africain vs SuperSport United 1:3
FUS Rabat vs TP Mazembe 0:0

African Confederation Cup holders TP Mazembe of DR Congo are aiming to win an 11th continental club title.

TP Mazembe go through 1:0 on aggregate

South Africans SuperSport United will meet holders TP Mazembe of DR Congo in November's Confederation Cup final.

South Africa's SuperSport United reached an African club final for the first time in their history when beating Club Africain 3:1 in Tunisia to win 4:2 on aggregate.

The Pretoria-based side will meet defending champions TP Mazembe next month after the Congolese drew 0:0 against FUS Rabat in Morocco on Saturday to qualify 1:0 on aggregate.

With the score level at 1:1 prior to Sunday's game in Rades, SuperSport United gave one of their best performances to claim victory on Tunisian soil.

Bradley Grobler opened the scoring for Eric Tinkler's side after 16 minutes before unsettled striker Jeremy Brockie doubled the lead just after half-time.

Within three minutes, the hosts had pulled one back from the penalty spot but any sense of a comeback for the pre-match favourites was extinguished when Grobler netted his second after 65 minutes.

SuperSport are only the second South African side to reach the final of African club football's second-tier competition, with Orlando Pirates beaten there by Tunisians Etoile du Sahel in 2015.

Yet the 2010 Confederation Cup winners could not beat Mazembe goalkeeper Sylvain Gbohouo, while missing some presentable chances, as they failed to win at home for the first time in this year's competition.

Meanwhile, Mazembe could have avoided a nervy finish had FUS goalkeeper Aymane Majid not pulled off saves to deny Malango and substitute Meschak Elia late on.

Five-time African champions Mazembe made it through thanks to Ben Malango's goal in the first leg in Lubumbashi on 1 October.

Having won the 2015 Champions League, the Congolese - unbeaten in this year's tournament - are through to a major African club final for the third year in a row.

Only one side has ever successfully defended the Confederation Cup: Tunisia's CS Sfaxien in 2007 and 2008.

The winner of the Confederation Cup, African football's second-tier club competition, will receive US$1,250,000 in prize money.
