Moghreb Tetouan are Moroccan champs

Moghreb Tetouan are now the new champions of Morocco after they defeated archrivals FUS Rabat 1-0 on Monday during the last match day of the Pro Ligue 1 known as Botola.

The club, based in the northern city of Tetouan, is winning the Moroccan league title for the first time since it was founded in 1922.

Some 40,000 supporters of both teams watched the tie-breaker at the Complexe Sportif Prince Moulay Abdellah in Rabat, and the event was the main attraction on television across the kingdom during the weekend.

After a nerve-racking goalless first half, MAT striker Abdelkrim Benhania outran his markers, jinked into FUS box and side stepped goalkeeper Aziz Kinani before finishing his effort in the back net in the 49th minute.

FUS’ relentless efforts to pull level never came to fruition till the final whistle.

At the end of the meeting, Morocco sports minister Mohamed Ouzzine handed the league’s shield and a cheque of 3 million dirhams (R 28m) to MAT captain Abderazak El Mnasfi.
