Zamalek played in a feeble defensive mode giving the Sundowns the chance to exert full control over the game and attack in different ways. Especially in the the first half, during which two goals were scored by the team returning to the league upon the CAF administrative decision. This was due to the mistakes committed jointly by the center-backs and the keeper Ahmed Al Shenawy.
