Orenburg scored again from the set piece, this time team best striker Joel Fameye netted from the rebound, as the ball ricocheted twice from Ufa defenders. The hosts took control and started making attempts one by one, and in the final minutes of the first half Yury Zhuravlev tipped with his head and made the score tied, meaning that Ufa get enough result for saving its place in the league.

The second half was more about yellow cards that the goal attempts, there were eight cards giving to the participants including Ufa head coach Aleksey Stukalov. The manager even left the bench, as the injury time started, and he was getting more nervous. The most heartbreaking moment came later, when Kirill Kaplenko sent the long ball to the box, and Orenburg captain Andrey Malykh shot straight into the right corner to bring RPL back in Orenburg.
