Morocco Raja Club Athletic beat Algerian side JS Kabilye 2-1 to win the Confederation of African Football (CAF) Cup in Cotonou, Benin, on Saturday.

Soufiane Rahimi and Ben Malango scored for Raja within the first quarter of an hour of the game.

Kabilye came back stronger in the second half with Mohamed Zakaria Boulahia halving the deficit just moments into the second half.

Raja were reduced to 10 men in the 62nd minute when Omar Arjoune was sent off for a high boot but managed to ensure the victory and their second Confederation Cup title.

Moroccan King Mohammed VI congratulated the team on their win for making Morocco proud, official news agency MAP said.

"My sincere congratulations to the team for their honorable performance," said Mohammed VI in a phone call with the club President.
