Saint-Etienne, on the rights of the owner of the field seized the initiative and opened the account - after a long throw Amum scored on Gabriel Silva, and the one from the left corner of the penalty shot past Pankiv. However, the Brazilian soon issued a double, sending the ball into the net after a counterattack by Alexandria overtaken by Tretyakov.
