TP Mazembe win 2016 CAF Confed Cup

Mazembe complete a rare ‘reverse double’
Just one year after winning the flagship club competition on the continent, DR Congo’s TP Mazembe have won the CAF Confederation Cup.
They beat Algerian side MO Bejaia 4-1 on Sunday, November 6 to emerge 5-2 aggregate winners of the second-tier club competition.
After a 2-0 first half in Lubumbashi, the dream to complete the reverse double saw them adding one more.
Though MO Bejaia got a consolation, Jonathan Bolingi’s final strike put the game beyond the North Africans.
This year’s finalists were coincidentally in the same group with Ghana’s Medeama SC, who missed the semi-finals to the losing finalists on head-to-head.
Medeama SC had not lost in the last 3 games prior to the Bejaia loss
Mazembe were beaten in Ghana at the group stage by Medeama
By the latest win, Mazembe owned by Congolese politician-cum-business magnate Moise Katumbi will play South Africa’s Mamelodi Sundowns in the CAF Super Cup next year.
