TP Mazembe

TP Mazembe have defeated Heartland of Nigeria 1-0 in Lubumbashi to win the Africa Champions League.

Before a sell-out 35,000 crowd at Kenya Stadium that included President Joseph Kabila, Mazembe put the pressure on Heartland from the start but the score remained unchanged until Victor Ezuruike put the ball into his own net at the 72nd minute.

After losing 1-2 in in the first leg in Owerri last Sunday, Mazembe only needed a 1-0 score to clinch the Africa Champions League for the third time thanks to their away goal.

Mazembe reached the CAF Champions League finals a record four consecutive years from 1967 to 1970. They won in 1967 and successfully defended the following year.

The win comes with a 1,500,000 US Dollar prize-money and a ticket to represent Africa at the FIFA World Club Championship slated for the United Arab Emirates in December.
