It was our night tonight, with Poli scraping a win although down to ten men since the 62nd minute. The only goal of the night was scored by Dejan Rusic in the 85th minute, who was at the right place when Rapid goalie Pardo punched the ball forward, after a corner-kick. The match was balanced most of the time, although Poli had a better start and the away side only managed to recover after the 30th minute. Despite Sretenovic being sent off, the white-violets showed great composure and determination to play for the win and it ultimately paid off!
