RS Berkane won the 2021/2022 CAF Confederation Cup after seeing off Orlando Pirates via a 5-4 penalty kicks shootout in the final match at the Godswill Akpabio Stadium in Uyo.
The game was forced into penalty kicks following a 1-1 draw after regulation and extra time, and it was the Moroccans whose luck shone above their South African counterparts.
Orlando Pirates forward Thembinkosi Lorch suffered the extremes of two emotions, scoring a 117th minute equalizer, and then stepping up to see his penalty kick saved in the shootout.
He was the only one who missed on Orlando Pirates’ side.
RS Berkane converted all their five kicks through Hamza El Moussaoui, Youssef Zghoudi, Ismail Mokadem, Issoufou Dayo and Brahim El Bahraoui who scored the winner.
