DR Congo's TP Mazembe were crowned CAF Confederation Cup champions for the first time in their history following a 5-2 aggregate victory over Algeria's MO Bejaia on Sunday.

Going into the return leg with a 1-1 draw from Blida, Mazembe prevailed 4-1 at home courtesy of goals from Merveille Bokadi, Rainford Kalaba (double) and Jonathan Bolingi.

Defender Sofiane Khadir scored the sole goal of Bejaia, who reached the CAF secondary competition final on their African debut, 15 minutes from time to make the score 3-1 but it proved no more than a consolation.

The title victory makes Mazembe the second-most decorated side with overall 10 CAF trophies, nine less than leading Cairo giants Ahly.
