Five CAF Champions League finals facts

30 October 2014, 11:02

Johannesburg - Five CAF Champions League finals facts ahead of second leg between Algerians Entente Setif and Congolese V Club in Blida Saturday (1815 GMT):

-- There have been five previous Algerian finalists. JS Kabylie lifted the trophy twice and Mouloudia Alger and Setif once each while Mouloudia Oran lost a penalty shootout.

-- Mouloudia Alger staged the greatest final comeback, overturning a 3-0 first-leg loss at Guineans Hafia with a three-goal home victory followed by success in the penalty shootout.

-- There have been 10 previous Congolese finalists with TP Mazembe winning four times and Vita once while Mazembe, Bilima (twice each) and Vita were runners-up.

-- Playing the first leg of the final at home or away does not offer a significant advantage with 25 previous champions playing away first and 23 at home first.

-- Of 235 goals scored in previous finals at an average of 2.3 per match, first legs produced 113, second legs 118, a play-off one, and there were three in the only single-match decider.
