"It's my first trophy here at Sheriff and I'm very happy to win it," said coach Zoran Zekić. "I would like to thank our fans who came here in a big numbers and supported us brilliantly. Both teams showed everything that football is about – goals, spirit and emotions."

However, Dacia, who finished a place above their opponents in the league, took the final to extra time when Petru Leuca headed a late, late equaliser following an own goal from Sheriff keeper Serghei Juric. They then lost Akhmet Barakhoev to a red card early in extra time but refused to curb their attacking instincts, only for Bulgarian striker Ismail Isa to bury the winner on 110 minutes.
