CAF Champions League Final: Mazembe Take Charge, Win At USM Alger

TP Mazembe took a big step towards regaining the CAF Champions League title with a 2-1 first leg final win at USM Alger on Saturday.
Rainford Kalaba opened the scoring for Mazembe but was shown a red card in first-half added time.

USM Alger also had Hocine El Orfi sent off for two bookable offences early in the second half.

Mazembe, 2013 champions, had a great chance to double their lead but Mbwana Samatta was denied from the penalty spot by Mohamed Zemmamouche.

But when the referee awarded Mazembe another spot kick a few minutes later, Samatta made amends and beat the goalkeeper to make it 2-0.

Mohamed Seguer gave USM Alger hope by scoring a fine goal just before full-time.

The second leg will take place on Mazembe’s Stade TP Mazembe in Lubumbashi, Congo DR, next Sunday.
