Just two minutes later, the Spaniards scored again, this time through Ferran Torres.
Dardanians were more courageous in the second half and put the Spanish team under pressure where as a result, Besar Halimi scored in the 70th minute from a long distance, taking advantage of the exit of goalkeeper Unaj Simon. After this goal, our footballers insisted on the second goal, creating two good chances separately through Lirim Kastrati. However, the goal of calm for the Spaniards was scored by Gerard Moreno in the 75th minute, confirming the victory of his team.
