The home team won 1:0, but thanks to the triumph of 3:0 at the “Asim Ferhatović-Hase” Stadium seven days ago, Sarajevo won the cup in the biggest domestic competition.
Already in the 3rd minute, Amar Rahmanović had a chance for Sarajevo, when, after a corner-kick, he sent the ball from seven meters by a head beside the goal.
The home team returned after a minute, but the shot of Stipe Marković from twenty meters was defended by the goalkeeper Vladan Kovačević.
Josip Ćorluka tried by a head kick in the 14th minute, but Kovačević was sure once again.
An excellent opportunity for Široki Brijeg was not used by Ivan Enin in the 19th minute, when he shot asquint from the left and hit the bar.
Home team came to advantage in the 23rd minute. Enin sent the ball from his half to Dražen Bagarić, who came alone in front of the goalkeeper of Sarajevo and scored a goal.
Two minutes later, Numan Kurdić tries with a head kick, but the goalkeeper of Široki Brijeg, Luka Bilobrk, threw the ball into the corner.
In the 49th minute, after throwing a ball of Mate Stanić on the right side, Bagarićev shot by head from a favourable position, and Kovačević was again at the height of the task.
The goalkeeper of Sarajevo was more successful than Bagarić also in the 51st minute, when he stopped the shot of the player of Široki Brijeg from the five-meter area.
The home players continued with attacks and they were close to score a goal in the 54th minute, when Dino Ćorić hit the crossbar.
Sarajevo played with ten players from the 72nd minute, because Numan Kurdić received a red card for the foul play.
Benjamin Tatar came alone in front of Luka Bilobrk in the 86th minute, but was not precise. It was also the last chance at the match.
The Sarajevo head coach Husref Musemić said after the match:
“It was hard. Široki Brijeg made a very good pressure, especially at the start of the second half. It seems we fought more when we stayed with ten players, but the host did not make a real chance for scoring a goal since then. Difficult game as expected. This success is a gift for the fans and I hope that we will make them happy again on Saturday.”
Goce Sedloski, the head coach of Široki Brijeg, said:
“Our goal was to qualify to Europe this season, what we have achieved. We wanted a trophy in the Cup, but unfortunately, we did not manage and congratulate the opponent. We did our best to make up for the backlog from the first match, but we did not take advantage of the opportunities that we created. Congratulations to my players for fighting.”
The cups and medals were presented to the finalists by the FF BH President Elvedin Begić and the vice-presidents Milorad Sofrenić and Ivan Beus.
