Uduokhai blocked a shot from Sven Schipplock at the last moment after some good work by Doan (24’). The Japanese attacker then missed with a curler himself (30’). FCA were struggling to create much going forward and only really had another moment of note through Richter, who missed the far post two minutes before the break.
