After missing a number of scoring chances in the first half, Yanga coach Yanga Hans van der Pluijm made changes, substituting Obrey Chirwa with Juma Mahadhi and later introduced Kelvin Yondani for Andrew Vicent.

Tambwe scored the second goal in the 79th minute when he headed home a Simon Msuva cross.He then added the third in a matter of minutes, at the 82nd minute, when he used a Juma Mahadhi pass to slot home, putting the game beyond the visiting side.
