In the second half, a furious ElPozo Murcia opening saw them turn things around. In space of five minutes, Valerio, Paradynski, and Pol Pacheco scored for the Murcia team to put them in a 5-4 lead. But the excitement did not end there as Matheus Prea scored his second goal of the evening in 33' to level it out once again.

ElPozo Murcia's chances took a hit when Rafa Santos got awarded a second yellow card in 38'. Match went into extra time but we did not see any more goals there, so teams took it to the penalties.
