Hussein Al-Mogahwi met Abdel-Shafy’s cross with a header 17 minutes into the first half to open the scoring following brilliant team play from the hosts. The visitors fought back but were unsuccessful in scoring an equalizer.

The hosts furthered their lead in the 58th minute of the match when Syrian striker Omar Al-Soma tapped the ball into the net.
