This marked the second time that the two teams met this week, first in the Addis Ababa City Cup final on Tuesday where Ethiopian Coffee lost 5-6 on penalty kicks,
Today’s encounter between the two sides didn’t produce as much excitement as it did on Tuesday.
The first goal was an own goal scored by Dawit Basha right before half-time and CBE scored their second goal thanks to a header by Philip Dawzi (75′).
Coffee’s chance came in the 85th minuted when Aschalew Girma was brought down in the penalty box, however his kick saved by CBE’s goalie.
The league will continue tomorrow with six matches taking place in Addis Ababa and in other cities.
