Sebastian Coates opened the scoring for Sporting Lisbon in the 21st minute, while Maitland was forced to play with 10 players after Paulo Victor da Silva was sent off in the 38th minute for receiving a second warning.

The fourth goal came through friendly fire, after Stefan Gartenmann, a Mittelland player, scored an own goal in the 85th minute.
