0-1 – Matisse Apelin (third) : Cho escapes on the right along the lateral line, and is planted toward the axis to serve the Mattis Aline in space at sixteen metres. The young Rennes striker seized his chance from the right, despite a slightly reduced angle, and saw his shot engulf the near post.

1-1 – Vadislav Vanat (7th) The Ukrainians are uniting in the axis near the penalty area. The ball reaches Vadyslav Vanat with his back to the goal, who turns on himself, puts his left foot and curls into the upper corner of Meslier.

1-2 – Kevin Thuram (10th) : Flood trovert on the left. Unopposed, the French defender pushes his movement to the goal line and passes a superb cross back to Kefrin Thuram from six metres, whose recovery from the left hit the mark.

1-3 – Amin Al-Juweiri (25) : Served on the left again, Travertt found Amin Guerry in the area. Niçois, slightly off center, rocks the opposite small net with a well-aimed shot from the flat of the right foot.

2-3 – Benoit Pediachel (44 csc) : Bondarenko turns into Sych on the right side of the box. The Ukrainian defender was turned over by the Ukrainian defender first by Truffert and then in the second by Benoît Badiashile who shot his own goalkeeper.

3-3 – Artem Bondarenko (50) : At sixteen meters on the left side, Kriskev returns to Paul, who immediately deviates towards Artem Bondarenko. The Ukrainian captain controls and continues with a shot from the right side that deceives Meslier as he touched the ball with a pass from Badiachel.
