Good afternoon and welcome to the live play by play of the 2016 Caf Confederations Cup second-leg final clash between TP Mazembe and Mouloudia Olympique de Béjaïa from Stade TP Mazembe in Lubumbashi, Democratic Republic of Congo.

The first-leg in  Blida, Algeria ended in a 1-1 stalemate.

Live commentary:

The Ravens are crowned Caf Confederations Cup winners for the first time.

90+3' - Full-Time: TP Mazembe 4-1 MO Bejaia (5-2 on aggregate)

77' GOAL! Parity restored as Bolingi hammers home from close range! The Algerians again unable to handle a cross into the box.

75' - GOAL! The Algerians pull a goal back, Khadir slots home after being played though on goal by Rahal.

62' - GOAL! Kalaba completes his brace to send the hosts into absolute delirum. That will be that. Asante with a delightful through ball, and the Zambian makes no mistake, hammering his left-footed shot into the roof of the net.

56' - Close! Luyindama's reckless clearance almost canon's into the back of his own net, the defender lucky to see the ball fly over teh crossbar with Gbohouo beaten.  That would have made things interesting.

50' - All the early pressure coming from the hosts as they go in search of what will surely be the killer goal. Just a reminder that today's winner will face Mamelodi Sundowns in next year's CAF Super Cup.

46' - Second-half has kicked-off in Lubumbashi. TP Mazembe attacking the goal to the right in the second half.

45+2' - Half-time: TP Mazembe 2-0 MO Bejaia

43' - GOAL! Kalaba makes it 2-0 with a crisp strike from just outside the area. A seventh goal of the campaign for the Zambian midifleder and Mazembe are well on course.

38' - Another free-kick chance for the visitors, but Yaya again fails in his attempt to find a teammate. His cross, that flies out for a goal-kick, draws a few boo's from those gathered - as could be expected.

30' - CLOSE! Bolingi now flashes he header attempt over the crossbar from a Asante cross.  Mazembe the better side thus far.

28' - Algerians living dangerously as Rahmani is forced into a top save from point-blank range to deny the hosts a second. The crabs all over the place when it comes to crosses into the area.

20' - Succession of free-kicks comes to nothing for the visitors as they probe for the equaliser.

14' - Assale, Bolingi and Kalaba link up to great effect once more, but the visitors get back in numbers to clear from danger. Bright start in the sunshine for the hosts.

7' - GOAL! Merveille Bope opens the scoring after seven minutes. The midfielder ghosts in at the back post to convert from a flick on, 1-0 and this will calm any nerves within Lubumbashi.

5' - Yaya registeres the first shot on target for the visitors, the Bejaia captain seeing his attempt from the edge of the area straight at the goalkeeper.

1' - Kick-off in Lubumbashi
