AS FAR won the 2019/2020 Throne Cup on Saturday at the Grand Stade d’Agadir after its victory (3-0) in the final against Moghreb de Tetouan. Taking advantage of the expulsion of MAT striker Hamza Hannouri in the 5th minute, the soldiers found the breach in the 55th minute with a first goal from Monteiro Borges, followed a few minutes later by a second goal from Adam Ennaffati ( 65th) and a third goal at the end of the game from Abelilah Amini (90th). A coronation that fans have been waiting for for more than a decade.
Thirteen years after his last crowning in the Throne Cup, the “Zaïm” returned to the podium of the prestigious Cup, on Saturday at the Grand Stade d’Agadir, after his victory in the final of the 2019/2020 edition against Moghreb de Tetouan.
Determined to win the trophy for this edition, the two clubs started the meeting with intensity, pushed by the hundreds of their supporters who made the trip to the capital of Souss to support their teams. The turning point of the match occurred in the 5th minute, after the expulsion by the match referee Bouchra Karboubi, of the MAT striker, Hamza Hannouri, after a violent tackle on the AS FAR goalkeeper, Ayoub Lakred. Confused by this expulsion, Abdelatif Jrindo’s men tried to repel the military attacks, without giving up. The latter were even dangerous on a few actions, but luck was not on their side. For its part, AS FAR tried to unblock the situation, but the effectiveness of the club’s attackers failed them. Despite numerous attempts by the military, the MAT defense held firm in the first period.
Monteira Borgos shatters the dream of MAT and paves the way to victory in FAR
After going through the locker room, Anouar Tarkhat’s teammates resumed their offensive actions with more vigor and determination. A few minutes after the game resumed, FAR Cape Verdean defender Monteiro Borgos unblocked the situation by opening the scoring in the 55th minute. A blow for the Rochiblancos defense which collapses and concedes a second goal a few minutes later scored by Adam Ennafati (65th). Overwhelmed by the situation, the MAT players tried somehow to hold on against the incursions of the military, but the offensive pressure of the latter was stronger and at the last minute, Abdelilah Amimi inflicted the coup de grace on MAT ( 90th). A victory that allows the capital club to win the twelfth Throne Cup in its history, the MAT, which fought to the end will still have to wait before lifting its first Throne Cup.
