DR Congo side TP Mazembe have booked themselves a spot in the final of the CAF Champions League after beating El Merreikh 3-0 in their semi final second leg in Lubumbashi on Sunday afternoon.

The DRC outfit outclassed the Sudanese club as they booked a 4-2 aggregate score after losing 2-1 away in the first leg in Sudan last weekend.

Two goals by Mbwana Aly Samata in the second half and a solitary strike by Roger Assale in the 79th minute was enough to hand the Lubumbashi-based club a massive victory.

Samata scored his first goal through an assist from Adama Traore as their movement forward and the constant pressure on the Merreikh defence proved to be too much.

Yaw Frimpong had a hand in the second goal of the afternoon as the Congolese giants overcame their visitors allowing Samata to complete his brace.

Although it was goalless at half time in the match, Mazembe came back stronger in the second stanza to seal the victory.

The DRC outfit are scheduled to meet USM Alger in the final as USM qualified for their first CAF Champions League final after their 2-1 aggregate win over Al Hilal on Saturday.
