The match was strong. On the one hand, Al-Gharafa entered the meeting with a strong desire to regain its victories after losing to Al-Arabi in the last round. Indeed, Al-Gharafa imposed control over most of the first half, and was able to consolidate its position in the 35th minute, when the referee awarded a penalty kick as a result of Abdul Rahman Raafat touching the ball with his hand. Yassin Ibrahimi saved it, scoring the first goal for Al-Gharafa. On the other hand, Umm Salal did not appear throughout the half, as Al-Gharafa imposed its control and lost more than one ball in front of Khalifa Abu Bakr’s goal through Ahmed Al-Janahi, Abdullah Sir Al-Khatim and Ahmed Alaa. In the second half, the movements of Yassin Ibrahimi came to give more activity to the Al-Gharafa attack line, and the second goal came in the 56th minute, after the ball reached Ahmed Al-Janahi, who scored the second goal. With the end of the second half approaching, Umm Salal narrowed the difference through Jawa Taksira in the 94th minute, from a pass by Jordanian Yassin Al-Bakhit, so the match ended with Al-Gharafa winning 2-1.
