Raja eliminated Mazembe 2-1 on aggregate despite losing 1-0 in Lubumbashi. 

The Moroccan club was slapped with $10,000 fine for failing to control their players who incited Mazembe fans. At the same time, Raja striker Iliash Haddad saw his provisional suspension lifted after he was involved in the ugly altercations. 

Mazembe were also fined $10,000 for failing to provide adequate security during the match, resulting in the ugly scenes involving fans and players.
