The two best chances in half time followed in violet. Handl failed on a corner with his head against KSV goalkeeper Giuliani (27.). A Jukic shot was blocked on the line after Fischer had done the groundwork with great effort (38.).

At the break, coach Manfred Schmid substituted Dominik Fitz for Vesel Demaku, who had to leave the pitch with muscular problems. Fischer (50th, with a header) and Fitz (62nd, from distance) had a go in the early stages of the second half. Shortly before the end of normal time, Handl scored from 16 metres after a cross from substitute Ohio (84th). In the final minute, Kapfenberg had another chance through Eloshvili, but the KSV captain shot just over.
