Vita 3 Raja Casablanca 1: Raja annex Confederation Cup despite second leg reverse in Kinshasa

As Vita needed to score at least two more goals in the last sixteen minutes of the game to lift their first continental title 45 years but the Moroccans held on to clinch their first Confederation Cup honor since 2003 with a 4-3 aggregate victory.

Raja Casablanca went into the game as 3-0 winners of the first leg final and made the task more harder for the home side after Abdelilah Hafidi opened the scoring in the 21st minute to bring the game at an aggregate scoreline of 4-0.

Florent Ibenge responded by pushing more men up front and got the equalizer from the feet of Jean Makusu Mundele before half time whose free kick effort beat Anas Zniti.

Mukoko Batezadio and Fabrice Ngoma scored two quick fire goals  in the 71st and 74th minutes respectively but still needed two more goals.

Raja were resilient and held on to break the heart of Vita fans at the Stade de Martyrs in Kinshasa.
