The game was put beyond Ismaily SC when Tunisian league top scorer, Khenissi, netted the third from the spotkick on 56 minutes. The Tunisians then made a host of changes to see off the score. Mido’s side, however, gained some ascendancy but could not grab a consolation goal. Ismaily even got a penalty but Adel Taha failed to convert.
