Trailing 2-1 from the first leg in Norway, Apoel looked to be heading out as the game entered stoppage time.

However, Giannis Gianniotas, Vander and Tomas De Vincenti, the third coming in the ninth minute of time added-on, struck to snatch a 3-0 second-leg win and shatter the hopes of the Norwegian league leaders and domestic champions.
