Before the end of the first half, Saud Abdel Hamid continued his defensive mistakes, and failed to prevent the second goal of the German team in the 43rd minute.
Al-Akhdar managed to adjust the result again by scoring its second goal through Sami Al-Najhi in the 50th minute.
The German defender Bieber received a red card in the 67th minute, but the green did not take advantage of the numerical shortage, while the Germans, who scored the third goal through Felix Odokhai in the 75th minute, did not retreat.
