Sadam netted KCCA’s first goal in the 73rd minute courtesy of his long range shot that beat Al Ahly goalkeeper El Shenawy.

Lukwago made several stops as well three of them, one-on-one situations as well as saving Walid Soliman’s penalty that should have handed the North Africans the lead in the 24th minute.
