Krol's CS Sfaxien Win CAF Confed Cup

Ruud Krol's CS Sfaxien edged out TP Mazembe 3-2 on aggregate win the CAF Confederations Cup, despite going down 2-1 in an exciting second-leg encounter in Lubumbashi on Saturday.

Krol’s men took a 2-0 lead coming into the second-leg tie but conceded twice in the first 23 minutes to set up a tense affair with the Congolese giants.

Patrice Carteron’s men scored first through striker Cheibane Traore, before levelling matters when Traore’s strike partner Mbwana Samata got on the score-sheet with just over 20 minutes on the clock to make the aggregate score 2-2.

Sfaxien held on though as they defended waves of pressure from their Congolese hosts and then struck late in the game, against the run of play to score a late winner.

Tunisian international forward Fakhreddine Ben Youssef then produced a dramatic 88th minute header to secure a third CAF Confederations Cup trophy.

Krol has now had a successful team with the Tunisian side after he led the Sfax club to their first league triumph in eight years in May.

They earn $660,000 in prize money and will now take on Champions League winners Al Ahly of Egypt, in the Confederation of African Football Super Cup in next year.
