Al Dhafra team took the initiative to score through Brazilian Thiago Luonco in the 43rd minute, and Al Bataeh equalized through its Malian player Siko Baba in the 72nd minute.
Al-Bataeh completed the match with ten players, after his right-back, Fahd Sabeel, was sent off at the end of the first half, and Al-Dhafra played minus the ranks in the last quarter of an hour after expelling his player Khaled Ali, who received the second yellow card because of his attempt to obtain a penalty kick by acting.
