After the goal both of the teams started to play calm. Rijeka had several opportunities but they did not find a goal. In the 29th minute after a long pass forward to Gaitanidis, Pandur came out from the cage really bad he hit Gaitanidis so the referee called a penalty shot. Lyratzis scored and used the penalty to make a bigger gap in-between the teams. A bit later in the 35th minute after a defender mistake from Rijeka, Gkargkalatzidis scored the Greek team third goal.
In the second half PAOK started first. They possessed the ball more but in the 53th minute Vuk Matej from Rijeka scored a goal by a penalty. This goal brought back a little hope for Rijeka but in the 70th minute after a great counter Lyratzis scored again luckily. The game ended with this goal the final result 1-4 to PAOK.
