Walk-off, Destruction As Vita Club Whip Al Masry In Kinshasa (Photos)
AS Vita Club whipped Al Masry 4-0 in the Caf Confederation Cup semi-finals second leg match at Martyrs Stadium – Kinshasa, DRC on Wednesday to sail through to the finals for the first time.
Fans filled to the brim the 80,000 sitter capacity facility also known as the theatre of Congolese football, creating an incredible atmosphere befitting the occasion.
And they were not disappointed as the Black Dolphins produced a memorable display to storm into the finals of the continental showpiece for the very first time in style.
Midfielder Eddy Ngoy Emomo got the party underway with the opener five minutes into play with a thumping header before doubling the score in the 38th minute with a superb left-foot strike for a comfortable 2-0 lead at halftime.
Danger-man Jean Marc Makusu Mundele beat the offside trap to coolly slot home the third in the 74thminute.
The goal that pretty much sealed Al Masry’s fate was a bitter pill to swallow for the Egyptians who were urged off the pitch by their technical bench led by legendary Hossam Hassan who strongly held that Makusu scored from an offside position.
The game resumed after five minutes of negotiations but it could only get worse for the visitors as substitute Mukoko drilled home the final nail in their coffin in the 93rd minute.
The Egyptians turned their anger and frustrations on the advertisement boards destroying a few. The chaos extended inside the dressing room where Vita Club claim there was more destruction.
Al Masry, on the other hand, reported that Hossam was hit by a missile on the head and received medical attention.
Vita Club will play Raja Casablanca of Morocco in the two-legged finals next month.
Raja beat Enyimba 3-1 on aggregate in the other semis rematch of the day at home to seal the finals matchup.
