In the first match at Dasharath Stadium, Friends took the lead twice and Machindra was ready to taste defeat. However, Olawale Afiz saved Machindra from defeat by returning the goal both times to keep Machindra at 2-2. In the 67th minute of the game, Prakash Budhathoki scored a goal to give Friends a 1-0 lead. However, this advantage proved to be only for a few minutes. Afiz scored after four minutes to tie the game 1-1.

After this, Rafiq Aminu scored a goal in the 79th minute and Friends took the lead again in the game. However, even here, Friends could not protect this lead. Afiz scored again after 4 minutes.
