Over time, the Ukrainians leveled the game, but Patrick van Leeuwen's men could not create a truly dangerous moment. Instead, the Romanians sometimes got into Matsapura's possession, Banku's shots after a partner's clearance and Papp's after a corner kick were dangerous.
After the break, "Zorya" continued to make mistakes, which the opponents took advantage of. In the 53rd minute, Bayaram doubled the home team's advantage after Nazarina's unsuccessful knock-out with an irresistible free kick. Soon, "University" scored for the third time - Matsapura intercepted a wing pass, and Banka hit the target with a billiard shot after a pass from his partner.
