1 The match was interrupted for 18 minutes at 75' with ES Tunis leading 1–0 after teargas was fired into a rioting crowd by police, with one canister landing in the VIP box.ES Tunis protested against the result, but the protest was rejected. It was also marred by the antics of Espérance's goalkeeper Chokri El Ouaer who deliberately injured himself with the intent to get the game abandoned since Espérance had exhausted their substitution. He was banned for one year by CAF for gamesmanship after the game.
