The team dominated the first half and took the lead through Ibrahima Konaté after a well-worked free kick routine involving four players (26'). The visitors came more into the game in the second half, but the second goal came at the right time when Marcel Sabitzer converted from the spot (70'). The final goal was a fine one from Angelino, who left the goalkeeper with no chance, firing a free-kick into the top corner from 25 metres (89').
