LevskiPoduene clearly had decided to counter-attack when they could, taking advantage of their formidable level with that tactic. Slaviya were relying on their world class ability to counter-attack. Slaviya's defence sent a ball soaring up the middle on a beautiful counterattack with 17 minutes gone, but Aliaksandar Prydarojny's finish was met by the reaching hands of the keeper. LevskiPoduene had a chance to take the lead after Tencho Stamboliyski's dazzling drive up the left, but the opportunity fizzled out as his shot went just over the bar after 33 minutes. After some beautiful movement down the left wing, Nikola Ganchev scored for LevskiPoduene putting them ahead 1 - 0, after 37 minutes. It was 1 - 0 at the break. LevskiPoduene claimed to have seen most of the ball, and the statistics agreed with them - possession being 64 percent.

The visitors' Mao Rangsey was alert after a cross coming in from the left, levelling the score at 1 - 1 after 50 minutes. With 56 minutes gone, Álvaro suddenly found himself completely free on the right wing when a counterattack by Slaviya caught their opponents by surprise. Only a great save by the opposing keeper prevented him from scoring. After 65 minutes, the home side was awarded a penalty. The visitors protested wildly but the referee was adamant. Angel Gúlúbov easily put the ball away to give the lead to LevskiPoduene. 2 - 1 Possession in the forty-five minutes was dominated by LevskiPoduene, with 66 percent of the ball.

Nikola Ganchev performed admirably for LevskiPoduene. Yordan Kyulavski on the other hand, had a terrible day. Slaviya's top performer was clearly Artur Mičan. Rinaldo D’Agostini turned in a dismal performance, however. The match ends 2 - 1.
