RS Berkane beat UD Songo 2-1 in a 2018 CAF Confederation Cup clash at the Stade Municipal de Berkane on Wednesday evening to seal top spot in Group B for the Moroccans.

The Oranges headed into the clash having already booked their place in the knockout stages alongside Al-Masry, but had to win to finish atop the group and duly secure a favourable draw.

Alain Traoré got the ball rolling as early as the fifth minute for his second goal in as many games for the club. The Burkina Faso international showcased superb control on the edge of the area before firing a rasping left-footed shot into the back of the net.

Songo, though, were not going to throw in the towel and the Mozambican club leveled matters two minutes after the break.

Jimmy Ukonde with an unbelievable long range effort that left the goalkeeper, who remained rooted to his spot, with no chance.

Berkane pressed forward in search of the winner and Mohammed Farehane provided the finish to seal all three points in the 72nd minute. The attacker with a neat finish from a tight angle as the hosts sealed top spot.

Al-Masry beat Al-Hilal Omdurman 2-0 at the same time in Port Said, Egypt.
