With two minutes to full time KCCA FC got a penalty that skipper Rennis Timothy Awany converted. Elsayed Ayman brought down striker Derrick Nsibambi in the box.

Early in the first half Al Ahly also got a penalty after 22 minutes, but KCCA FC goalkeeper Charles Lukwago who was returning from suspension saved Walid Said Ebeid's shot.
