Maziya made several changes from their previous game, with Milos Kovacevic, Hassan Shifaz and Ismail Easa replacing Amdhan Ali, Moosa Yamin and Mohamed Arif while Boateng Kwadjo was a notable absentee for Maalhos due to suspension.

Maziya started the better of the two sides and created the first chance of the game in the second minute when Ismail Easa was on the end of a decent cross from Keric but his shot went straight into the gloves of keeper Ibrahim Zameer.

And soon it was 3-0 for the green boys, as Keric found the back of the net after receiving a decent pass from Ismail Easa.

Then on 16 minutes, Adam Majid headed straight into the gloves of Maziya keeper Mahmoud Al Youssef.

Shortly before the break, Yasfaad added a fourth goal for his side when he found the bottom corner of the net with a strike from inside the box.

Maalhos had a decent chance after the break on 62 minutes, but Ali Waseem fired the shot straight into the gloves of Mahmoud before Angel Carrascosa Munoz dragged his shot wide two minutes later.
