RS Berkane Beat Pyramids To Win CAF Confederation Cup

Sunday, October 25
*RS Berkane 1-0 Pyramids

Moroccan side RS Berkane edged Egyptian Pyramids FC 1-0 to win this season’s CAF Confederation Cup on Sunday.

Mohssine Iajour scored the only goal as RS Berkane clinched their first ever Confederation Cup title.

This was their second final, after losing last year’s final on penalties to another Egyptian side, Zamalek SC.

Mohssine’s goal came in the 15th minute after the ball ricocheted off his foot and the side held on for a historical win at Prince Moulay Abdellah in Rabat.

Berkane had to finish the game with 10 men, just like in last year’s final, when Bakre El Helali was sent off for a dangerous tackle with two minutes left on the clock.

Tunisia’s CS Sfaxien (3), Étoile du Sahel (2) and
Democratic Republic of the Congo’s TP Mazembe (2) are the only two sides to have won this title more than once.

The next edition kicks off with qualifiers next month.
