Bourahama Sidibe converted a stoppage-time penalty to give Djoliba of Mali a 2-1 home victory over Wydad Casablanca from Morocco today in the CAF Confederation Cup.

In a tale of two penalties on Matchday 3, Mohammed Berrabeh missed one in the first half for Wydad before the visitors went ahead on 38 minutes when Younes Houassi scored his third goal of the campaign.

A dreadful defensive blunder by Youssef Rabeh gifted Alou Bagayoko a 73rd-minute equaliser before Sidibe rubbed salt into Moroccan wounds with his last-gasp winner.

Stade Malien had to settle for a 1-1 draw with Congo Brazzaville visitors AC Leopards in another Group B match in the Malian this weekend with Ousmane Cisse putting the local club ahead and Treston Lakolo levelling before half-time.

Djoliba have seven points, Leopards three and Wydad and Stade two each halfway through the six-round group phase with each club chasing a top-two finish and a place in the semi-finals of the second-tier competition.
