The match could have taken a different turn if Dimitar Vodenicharov converted a penalty in the 26th minute, but he hit the bar to squander a great chance. Metalurg would go on to get two goals to take a 0:2 lead at the halftime break. Pelister did pull one back through Lyubomir Lyubenov’s great goal at the hour mark, but Metalurg then grabbed a third goal in the 84th minute to put away Pelister for good.

Brazilian Stênio Júnior opened the scoring with a nice individual goal, while Mensur Kurtishi doubled his team’s lead minutes later.
