The city of Szeged was looking forward to the arrival of Partizan a lot, they all took this match as a great derby. Meanwhile Partizan got a reinforcement of 3 new Russian players in the meantime, namely Alexey Tifonov, Evgeny Vlasov and Anton Zhukov.
Then for 6 long minutes the two teams were just battling hard against each other. Goalkeepers brought their best on both sides, while Vlasov missed out a couple of chances (so did Ódry on the other side of the ice hall). Then in the 16th minute Zhukov passed the puck to Vlasov, Vlasov thanked and shot it into the net. 0:3
Only 4 minutes passed from the second part, when Partizan was ahead with 0:4. Brkušanin sent a distant cannon shot to the goal of Szeged and scored. The home team reduced the difference a minute later by Ódry's goal (1:4).
This goal sped up a bit the home team, but Brkušanin cooled them down in the 30th minute with a goal shot from power play (1:5). Then Vlasov hit the goalpost, then referees whistled and Partizan got a penalty. Mitić shot, Szeged's goalkeeper Szőke saved it.
Szeged got into power play in the 34th minute for the first time, but the funny (or absurd) was that even this way Partizan almost scored.
Finally we really did score. Milovanović scored from a cheeky, extremely sharp angle. (1:6) Until the end of the second part there was no more goals, just a very heavy Partizan-pressure.
In the last part Volán sped up and tried to push Partizan hard, but eventually we scored again. In the 44th minute Brkušanin passed to Zhukov, the Russian didn’t waste any time, shot and scored. 1:7 Oh, and for the whole time Szeged was in power play.
Then we got into double power play. We took advantage of it, now Terzić scored (1:8)
In the 47th minute Szeged scored another goal. First Bosnyák shot, but that was saved by Luković. The puck dropped to Dávid Szabó, he scored. 2:8
Then in the 51st minute Gabrić almost started a private fight with a Szeged-player, but eventually everyone was calmed down. For a while both teams missed out their chances, then at the very end, almost at the end buzz Milovanović slid up on the left and passed to Zhukov, who slid with the puck right into the net, settling the final result. 2:9
