However, Voša was not left with one less player, as in the agreement between the clubs, in case of expulsion, another player was allowed to replace him, and that was Igor Jeličić.
In the 69th minute, Akhmat had a great chance, Divanovich was left alone in the penalty box and shot over the crossbar from about 12 meters. Voša retaliated only a minute later, Zukić brought the ball nicely into the middle and shot from 18 meters with his left foot past the post.
