Spartak midfielder Alexander Samedov buried the ball in the top left corner in the 59th minute to give his side the lead after Maribor goalkeeper Jasmin Handanovic had parried a shot.

The goalless first half, filled with missed opportunities, was briefly interrupted after a flare flew onto the centre of the pitch.
