PIS once more applied the pressure in the second half and were rewarded, when Morutan found the net once more, 63 minutes in. NUO in turn, then responded on the 82 minute mark, grabbing the lead with an effort from D’urso so at full time it was 3-1 to PIS.

Substitutions for PIS included Gliozzi, Mastinu, Tramoni, Sibilli and De Vitis for Masucci, Ioniţă, Morutan, Torregrossa and Nagy, respectively. NUO replaced Butic, Merola, Vallocchia, Voca and Larrivey for D’urso, Brignola, Nasti, Caló and Massimo Zilli.
