Renaissance Sportive Berkane beat South African side Orlando Pirates 5-4 on penalties to win the 2021/22 CAF Confederation Cup final played at Godswill Akpabio Stadium in Oyo, Nigeria.

The full-time ended goalless before both sides scored a goal each in either half of extra time.

Berkane broke the deadlock through Youssef Alfahli’s penalty kick in the 97th minute.

Orlando Pirates equalized in the 117th minute through Bafana Bafana forward Thembinkosi Lorch and sent the final into a post match shoot out to determine the winner.

However Lorch was the only player who missed a penalty as Berkane scored all their penalties to win the title.

Hamza El Moussaoui, Youssef Zghoudi, Ismail Mokadem, Issoufou Dayo and Brahim El Bahraoui all scored for the Moroccan side.

Happy Jele, Tshegofatso Mabasa, Thabang Monare and goalkeeper Richard Ofori scored for the Pirates.

This is the second CAF Confederation Cup Berkane have won. Their first title came in 2020 after edging Egyptian giants Pyramids in the final.
