Zinchenko opened the score with a half-volley on a nice pass from Yarmolenko (27′).  Forsberg, very active on his left side, equalized before half-time (43′). The score did not change in the second half. The Swedish goalscorer was unlucky with a shot on the bar and another one on the post.

At the beginning of the extra time, Danielson got a red card for a very dangerous foul on Besyedin who had to leave with an injury (99th). Reduced to ten, the Swedes already exhausted, ended up cracking in the very last minute of extra time on a superb diving header from Dovbyk (121′).
