In the 6th minute, Emmanuel Ume advanced and shot from 15 meters out, with the ball hitting Ivan Turitsov’s right wrist. The players in yellow-black rightfully asked for a penalty, but the main referee of the match Ivaylo Stoyanov did not award one, and VAR arbiter Valentin Zhelezov also did not signal anything wrong.

Strong minutes followed for Dušan Kerkez’s squad , however the first goal of the match fell in the 26th minute and it was for CSKA Sofia.

In the 33rd minute, CSKA doubled their lead after a goal by Karanga, scoring with a header from a corner kick. In the 35th minute, Emmanuel Ume scored a goal that was disallowed by the official referee Ivaylo Stoyanov, calling an extremely controversial foul on Ume against Šakić, which led to a stormy reaction from our bench.

In the 42nd minute again, Fernando Karanga scored a goal. In a static situation in favour of CSKA executed by Thibaut Vion, the ball found Karanga and he once again headed past Matvey Igonen for 3-0.

The second half began with a good opportunity for Botev to score a goal, Ume had another great chance to reduce the deficit, but his shot went wide of Gustavo Busato’s goal.

In the 65th minute, CSKA scored their fourth goal after a defensive mistake – Phaeton took advantage and scored into Matvey Igonen’s goal.
