Nejmeh are one win away from defending their Elite Cup title after coming from behind to beat league and cup champions Ahed 3-1 in the semifinals Sunday. Awaiting Nejmeh in the final later this month will be Akhaa Ahli Aley, who comfortably brushed aside Salam Zgharta in the day's other encounter.The convincing win over Ahed was a significant blow landed by Nejmeh, with the upcoming Lebanese Premier League widely expected to be a two-horse race between the capital rivals.Matar's endeavor was duly rewarded 10 minutes after the restart, the 26-year-old scoring from a fierce drive from outside the box to give Nejmeh a deserved lead.
