AEK scored the opener in the 31st minute with the penalty kick that was awarded in favour of Petros Mantalos and scored by Nordin Amrabat, and went on missing big chances for a second goal. Atromitos equalized in the 89th minute with the penalty kick that was awarded in favour of Karol Angileski and also scored by him.

However AEK even with ten players grabbed the victory as Mantalos won one more penalty.
