Schmidt made five changes during the break, but it had little affect on the rhythm to proceedings as Bayer continued to press forward in search of an opener that came just before the hour mark. Calhanoglu found a pocket of space out wide to pick out an unmarked Chicharito, who made no mistake with his header from ten yards out.

Leverkusen could have, and perhaps should have, extended their lead in a one-sided encounter with Joel Pohjanpalo and Admir Mehmedi testing Uilson in goal, but Bayer's narrow lead ultimately remained untroubled as they cruised to victory.
