By the 21st minute, the Basques signed three times in Trubin's goal. The goals were scored by Mikel Merino, Mikel Oyarzabal and Ander Barrenechea. Another Merino ball was canceled by the referee due to hand play.
The hosts did not stop there and soon earned a penalty, but Brais Mendes missed an eleven-meter penalty in the 29th minute, hitting the post.
Immediately after the break, the Lisbon team managed to pull one back through the efforts of Rafa Silva, but the Portuguese team did not have enough strength for more.
