Both teams played on attack from the start, with several chances being created but not capitalised on. However, in the 21st minute, Mohammad Atif’s defence-splitting pace gave former international Safiullah to score the opening goal of the match for K-P.
But the lead was short-lived as Afghan FC hit back just seven minutes later.
Abdus Samad scored the equaliser in the 28th minute, with the first-half ending in a 1-1 draw.
In the second interval, both sides were unable to breach each other’s defence and were left sharing the points after playing a drawn match.
