TP Mazembe brushed aside CF Mounana 2-0 in the 2017 CAF Confederation Cup Group D match at the Stade TP Mazembe in DR Congo on Sunday afternoon.

The win takes the DR Congo giants to the top of Group D with three points, while Gabon's Mounana drop to the bottom of the group without a single point.

It took 18 minutes for Tresor Mputu Mabi to fire Mazembe into the lead. The forward scored with a decent finish with Issama Mpeko grabbing an assist.

The Ravens continued to push for another goal after taking the lead, but they were contained by Mounana and it was 1-0 to Mazembe at half-time.

The home side did double their lead through one of their longest serving players Rainford Kalaba, the Zambian captain and winger.

The skillful player hit the back of the net five minutes after the restart to make it 2-0 to Mazembe with Solomon Asante grabbing an assist.

Mounana were unable to beat Ivory Coast international Sylvain Gbohouo in the Mazembe goal on the day, and ultimately, the home side won 2-0.
