Vita Club have booked their place in the CAF Champions League final for the first time in 33 years following an impressive 4-2 aggregate win over Tunisia's Sfaxien in the competition's semis.

Following a 2-1 home win in Kinshasa, Vita repeated the same feat away from home at Sfaxien , where they came back from one goal down - scored in the 26th minute by Zied Derbali.

The Tunisians were then pegged back by two goals from Nelson Munganga and Yunus Sentamu either side of the interval to revive their hopes of claiming a title they last won in 1973.

The Congolese side await the winner from the match between TP Mazembe and ES Setif, who emerged 2-1 winners in the semi final first leg in Algeria.
