Despite Union thinking they had a third goal, VAR intervened due to a handball in the build-up. Liverpool briefly seemed poised to capitalize, introducing Darwin Nunez, but Union continued to create chances. Union had opportunities to extend their lead, with Kelleher making crucial saves and Gustaf Nilsson missing a glorious chance.

As the game approached its conclusion, Union remained the more likely team to score, with Kelleher making key saves, including one from Dennis Eckert. Ryan Gravenberch forced Anthony Moris into his first save of the night, and one more stop in the 95th minute sealed Union’s historic victory.
