At the beginning of the second half, Cicinho intervened decisively after a shot by Hostika and scored. Cauly's header followed - out. After an hour of play, Ludogorets made an excellent counterattack, and at the end of it, Cauly's would, but he almost missed scoring.
The score became 2:0 in the 65th minute. Tekpetey stole the ball from Hostika and went out on his own against Connor Hazard, cut it back for Rick and he couldn't make a mistake with his left foot.
