The derby match of the Libyan capital, Tripoli, between Al-Ittihad and Al-Ahly Tripoli on Saturday at Abu Salim Stadium ended 0-0 as part of the last round of Group Two of the Libyan Premier League.
The two played a modest game as they both booked a place in the six-team round for the league title.
This tie is the fifth for Al-Ittihad this season and the second in a row, as the team did not win in the last 3 rounds.
On the other hand, Al-Ahly Tripoli registered its second draw in the last 3 rounds and the eighth this season.
Al-Ittihad now leads the group with 35 points, while Al-Ahly Tripoli came in second with 32 points.
The Libyan Football Federation conducted last Thursday the draw for the six-team round, which will start on June 23; and like last year, it'll be held in Tunisian stadiums, which led to rejection by some fans who refused to hold the matches outside Libya, but others agreed with the step due to the country’s lack of infrastructure.
Later on the Libyan government settled the controversy and announced that it would fund the expenses of holding the six-team round in Tunisia provided that it will be the last time Libyan League matches are played abroad.
