It confirmed its advance to the round of 16 early and put a large number of key players on the bench, but defending champion Manchester City took the lead by scoring one goal each in the first and second half.
In the 31st minute of the second half, when Zvezda was taking the reins of the attack for the chase goal, it was Hwang In-beom who saved the team from losing.
After rushing into the box and exchanging one-two passes with Bukari, he scored his Champions League debut goal with a powerful left-footed shot.
Hwang In-beom helped his team's second goal with a precise cross towards Katai's head in the second half of the extra-time corner kick situation.
Zvezda, who lost 2-3 to Manchester City, finished the Champions group stage at the bottom of the group, but it was as brilliant as Hwang In-beom.
The soccer statistics media gave Hwang In-beom the highest ratings of both teams.

"I tried hard to win, but unfortunately the result did not come true. But I am proud of the players who fought hard."
Paris Saint-Germain's Lee Kang-in started against Dortmund, which will be a watershed moment for advancing to the Champions League round of 16.
He enjoyed the pitch regardless of the left and right centers, but his overall performance was disappointing, as he missed a decisive chance at the goal in the 16th minute of the first half.
In the end, he was replaced in the 23rd minute of the second half without an attacking point, and the team survived a dramatic "group of death" with a draw by Jair Emery's goal.
Despite having the same points as AC Milan, which won Newcastle at the same time, he managed to reach the round of 16 ahead of the goal difference in the face-off game.
Lee Kang-in's PSG, who entered the tournament as the second-ranked player in the group, is likely to meet Kim Min-jae's Bayern Munich, who came out as the first-ranked player in the group, in the round of 16.
