A replay of the 2008/2009 final saw the same outcome unfold. Abdelsalam Nagah put Hodood in the lead before Ahmed El-Saidi made it 1-1 taking the game directly to a penalty shootout.

It was all up to Haras captain Mohamed Halim and he duly converted his penalty, booking the 08/09 and 09/10 champions a place in the quarter-finals.

Al Qanah 1-1 Al-Ragaa (5-4 pens) 

Having already been relegated, Al Qanah entered the game with hopes of reaching the last eight. However, they fell behing through Ibrahim Hassan who put the Matruh side in the lead.
