Algeria’s JS Kabylie stormed into the final of the 2020/2021 CAF Confederation Cup Competition after a 3-0 victory over Cameroon’s Coton Sport on Sunday evening.
In this return leg of their semi-final fixture, the healthy victory in Algiers earned JS Kabylie a 5-1 aggregate victory having won the first leg in Garoua 2-1 last week.
A brace from Zakaria Boulahia, in between Badreddine Souyad’s penalty kick, was all The Canaries needed to sail into a continental final for the first time since 2002.
JS Kabylie got off to the right start with a goal in the sixth minute.
This was when Boulahia struck into the net with a neat low shot from the right after being played through by Mohamed Benchaira.
They continued to dominate the game but they had to wait until the 37th minute before they got their second goal.
This time, Souyad converted from the penalty kick spot to give them a 2-0 advantage on the night and a 4-1 aggregate score.
Boulahia then put the game beyond doubt at the stroke of half-time when he swept the ball home off Walid Bencherifa’s cross from the left.
JS Kabylie continued to dominate the game in the second half and had the chances to score, but could not add on to their tally.
They will now meet Raja Club Athletic in the July 10 finale in Cotonou, looking to add a CAF title to their name. (NAN)
