The home side's P. Jujang
came close to extending the lead 27 minutes into the game. His shot came in from the right hand side but M. Tullund
managed to save it with an unbelievable reaction stop.

showed off his trademark ability to do the unexpected with a tricky pass after 28 minutes. Unfortunately, M. Wiciński
was startled by the play and wasn't able to control the finish.
After 30 minutes, M. Bąkowicz
sent the corner kick right to P. Jujang
