The converted penalty kick by Todorovski:

Mario Gjurovski started for Muangthong United and played until the 86th minute when he was replaced by Umarin Yaodam.  The starting keeper of Muangthong United had just picked up a red card moments earlier so Gjurovski was sacrificed to allow for the introduction of the backup keeper.  Mario had his best chance in the 52nd minute but his well taken free kick was parried away nicely by the opposing keeper.

Azerbaijan, Azerbaycan Kuboku, Neftçi – Xəzər 0:0  (Neftçi won domestic cup 5:3 on penalties)
Igor Mitreski was not included in the 18 player squad by Neftçi.  Since the game was tied at 0:0 after 90 minutes and then remained goalless following the added 30 minutes of extra time, the match went into penalty kicks where Neftçi prevailed 5:3 to claim the Azeri Cup over Xəzər, a team managed by former Macedonian national team coach John Toshack.
