North will face South in the 2014 CAF Champions League final after Entente Setif lost 3-2 away to TP Mazembe on Sunday but advanced 4-4 on aggregate.

Heroes on the day away in Lubumbashi were strikers Sofiane Younes and Abdelmalek Ziaya, who returned to haunt Mazembe for a second successive semifinal match.

The duo scored a goal each in the first leg meeting on September 20 that Setif won 2-1 after rallying from 1-0 early in the second half to hand them a vital advantage.

Ziaya put Setif ahead in the ninth minute but Mazembe equalised in the 21st minute through Ghana-born midfielder Daniel Adjei.

Salif Coulibaly put the DR Congo side ahead in the 38th minute to see the two sides go 2-1 into the break.

Jonathan Bolingi added Mazembe's third goal in the 53rd minute, but Younes broke the home side’s hearts with the clincher in the 75th minute.

Setif will face DR Congo club AS Vita in the final after the latter beat CS Sfaxien 2-1 away in Tunisia on Saturday to advance 4-2 on aggregate.

The Algerians will host Vita in the first leg on October 25 before travelling to Kinshasa for the final leg on November 1.
