We know the poster for the Confederation Cup final. This will oppose the Tanzanians of Young Africans to the Algerians of USM Alger on May 28 and June 3.

Having managed to return unscathed from Bouaké in the first leg (0-0), USMA made the difference at home this Wednesday in the semi-final return (2-0). On a throw-in that took the Ivorian defense from behind, Khaled Bousseliou opened the scoring just before the half-hour mark (1-0, 28e). Abdelhak Benchikha’s men then got very hot in the 72e minute when defender Belaïd and goalkeeper Benbot had to work in turn to defeat Diarrassouba in extremis. An equalizer ivorian would indeed have allowed ASEC to qualify under the away goal rule.

A few minutes later, on a clearance from his goalkeeper, Belkacemi took advantage of the advanced position and the wait-and-see attitude of the visitors’ goalkeeper, Folly, to finally bend this double confrontation (2-0, 80e).

In the final, the USMA will therefore challenge Young Africans. Winners 2-0 at home in the first leg, the Tanzanians gave Marumo Gallants no chance by winning again, this time away at the Royal Bafokeng Stadium (2-1). Author of the opener (45th + 1) then passer for Kennedy Musonda (62nd), the Congolese Fiston Mayele will once again have been the great architect of this success, the reduction of the South African score by Ranga Chivaviro proving far too late (90e+1).
