JS Kabylie booked their spot in the final of the 2020/21 CAF Confederation Cup with a 3-0 (5-1 on aggregate) win over Cotonsport at Stade du 5 Juillet 1962 in Algiers on Sunday evening.
The Algerians made light work of their opponents over two legs and victory on home soil secured a fourth win over Cotonsport for the Canaries in this season’s competition alone, having between the Cameroonian outfit home-and-away in the groups stages.
JS Kabylie will face Raja Casablanca in this season’s final in Cotonou, Benin on July 10.
The hosts carried on from where they left off in the first-leg, opening their account in Algiers after just six minutes through Zakaria Boulahia.
Bedr Souyad doubled their lead from the penalty spot in the 37th minute before Boulahia completed his brace in first-half stoppage-time to take the game away from the visitors.
Cotonsport improved following the interval but weren’t going to deny Denis Lavagne’s troops a place in this year’s final where they will be hoping to win their seventh CAF title and first CAF Confed Cup.
