A goal scored after ten minutes gave Pohang Steelers a 1-0 lead against FK Sarajevo. With its starting lineup and later on a penalty kick, the South Korean team scored a bull's eye and led the match. After the goal, Pohang maintained its field initiative and superiority.
Our defenders released the pressure after 25 minutes when Biblija missed a chance to score for 1-1. Until the end of the first half, the ball possession and generally the field play was in our favor but with no goal scored.

Until the end of the match, we have had three goal-scoring opportunities. After Todorivić and Travančić, Adnan Kovačević had the best chance for scoring, but unfortunately the ball hit the bar.
