The game, which serves as the traditional curtain-raiser for the 2014/15 domestic league season, was well-attended after many football enthusiasts described it as a crunch tie.
The match lived up to its billing as the floodgates were opened as early as the fifth minute when Alagie Bah powered in a shot after a beautiful play with Famara Jarju.
Real de Banjul dominated possession with Madi Fatty and Famara Jarju both coming close to extending the lead but could only head into the break with a 1-0 result.
Both teams enjoyed fair share of possession in the second period but it was Real who made the best use of it with Famara Jarju and Madi Fatty extending the lead despite Muhammed Sidibeh pulling a goal back after a defensive blunder.
Real de Banjul and Banjul United would both represent The Gambia at the Orange CAF Champions League and Confederation Cup respectively.
