The second half began just like the first with both sides struggling to create chances. Bruno had another opportunity to give his side the lead, but again his shot went off target. Lachenpa continued his performance from the first half and denied Al Jazira from taking the lead in this match.

In the closing stages of the game, Diego Mauricio was through on goal but his shot was saved by Ali Khasif. That was the last of the action in the game and the match ended in a goalless draw.
