Setif break new ground with CAF Super Cup win

ES Setif became the first Algerian team to win the CAF Super Cup after a penalty shoot-out victory over Al Ahly in Blida on Saturday.

CAF Champions League holders ES Setif added the Super Cup title to their honours with the help of a 6-5 penalty shoot-out win against Al Ahly at the Stade Mustapha Tchaker on Saturday.

After the sides remained level at 1-1 following normal time, it was the Algerian side who claimed the title against the CAF Confederation Cup champions.

Abdelmalek Ziaya looked to have registered the winning goal for Setif when he opened the scoring 20 minutes from time.

However, Emad Moteab levelled matters deep into second-half stoppage time to take the showpiece to a penalty shoot-out.

Full-back Bassem Ali proved to be the fall guy for the Egyptian champions as he missed the crucial penalty to hand the title to Setif, who become the first team from Algeria to lift the Super Cup.
