Early on, Southampton put a lot of pressure and, in a corner kick in the 5th minute, Bednarek went up to head the first goal, but the equalizer came in the 23rd, with the submission of Janelt. However, the team that was better in the first half ended up being rewarded in a misfortune by goalkeeper Álvaro Fernández. In the 37th minute, he tried to save a shot, but the ball hit the post and bounced back into his hand, entering the goal.

In the second half, at 4 minutes, the hosts scored with Broja in a counterattack, returning at the same pace they left. At 25, Che Adams scored the fourth goal and closed the scoring.
