Johannesburg - Five CAF Confederation Cup finals facts ahead of 2014 decider between Ivorians Sewe Sport and Egyptians Al-Ahly:
-- Tunisians CS Sfaxien have won the competition a record three times, defeating Sudanese El-Merrikh in 2007, compatriots Etoile Sahel in 2008 and Democratic Republic of Congo outfit TP Mazembe last year.
-- Most of the 10 two-leg finals have been close encounters with three decided by penalty shootouts, two by the away-goal rule and three by one-goal aggregate margins.
-- Tunisian clubs have lifted the trophy four times, Moroccan sides three times, and there has been one success each for teams from Ghana, Mali and Congo Brazzaville.
-- Ahly, who visit Sewe for the first leg in Abidjan, can draw comfort from the fact that six of the 10 title winners played away first in the final.
-- Away victories have been scarce, though, with only Sfaxien and Moroccans FUS Rabat achieving the feat. There have been 10 home wins and eight draws.
