After a goalless draw until the last 15 minutes, Al Ahly players managed to score two goals to finish the day victorious.

Percy Tau tried to find the net on two occasions but his efforts did not find the target.
In the second half, there was no big change on the pitch until the coach made three substitutions as Ziad Tarek, Karim Fouad and Hossam Hassan joined the game.
Mohamed Hany continued the game as a left back after Mohamed Ashraf was substituted.
Hossam was awarded a penalty after being tackled inside the box. The referee whistled the penalty after reviewing VAR.
Ramy Rabia converted the penalty to give us a 1-0 lead.
