After the half time only Ludogorets showed good activity. Popa entered the field and a lot of situations happened in front of the guest team’ gate. Wanderson sent the ball out in the 64th minute while trying to score and five minutes later there was another situation. Popa passed to Sasha who tried to score from the penalty zone outline but the ball stopped in Turitsov’s body.

Pinto jumped towards him and kicked the ball out, and Ludogorets demanded a penalty shot, but the referee decided it was a corner shot. Keseru scored ten minutes later but the goal was cancelled due to an offside situation. Ludogorets tried to score until the very end but it did not happen.
