Levski took the lead five minutes later. Tsonev had no trouble scoring. The home team demanded a penalty against Ikoko afterward but it did not happen. Ludogorets evened the score 180 seconds later. Yankov added the goal. Verdon tried to score in the 35th minute, but he was not accurate.
Sotiriou scored soon after the second half began. Tsonev almost evened the score in the 58th minute, but Kahlina saved gracefully. Mihaylov also tried to even the score but missed the gate. The home team demanded a penalty against Plastun. Kabakov decided it was fair to rule one. Tsonev scored for 2:2. Later, Manu made the score 3:2 after taking advantage of a competitor’s mistake.
