Ludogorets was able to create a nice attack in the 5th minute, when Lukoki passed to Lukas Sasha with his heel, but his attempt from the border of the penalty zone was too weak. Six minutes later Lukoki was able to come close to an attempt to score, but a defender from the other team kicked the ball back. Later Akhmat showed some attitude and Utsiev received an yellow card after a rude penalty against Lukas Sasha.
Klimentov passed to Lukoki in the 35th minute, and he was faster than an Akhmat defender, after which the ball went to Swierczok, who scored easily for 1:0! Seven minutes later Joao Paulo tried to score, but the keeper Gudiev saved. Batsuev was able to return the favor by taking the ball from Yankov, after which he shot form 25 meters, but the ball went straight into the woodwork.

The replacement player Kovachev tried to score from the left side, but the keeper Gorodov saved by kicking the ball into a corner.
