Due to an all-day shower, 1951 paying spectators got to see a match on a pitch-turned-bog at SB Arena. was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Ersan bin Hj Mashor and . Barcelona started off with a 5-5-0 lineup. They fielded: Temmerman - Teo, Carvajal, Kondraciuk, Jijavadze, Calfín - Lacadi Paoli, Breheret, Lipshten, Mitache, Consani -.

A 5-3-2 alignment was the formation of choice for Sahura. Starters: Polak - Tsiolas, Meulemans, Uyaynah, Søndrål, Abd El Fattah - Bin-Jaber, Huck, Candelli - Variar, Štěpán.

Pressing was the tactic of the day for Barcelona, taking advantage of their poor level with that tactic. Using their counter-attacking abilities was the strategy of choice for Sahura on this day, taking advantage of their supernatural level with that tactic. Sahura's Michal Štěpán could have put the guests one up after 24 minutes after chasing a through ball from the right, but Wouter Temmerman was as fast as a snake, grabbing the ball from under his nose. A corner kick created great disorder in the penalty area with a goal nearly scored by Sadik 'Cobra' Abd El Fattah. At last, Sahura's Venkat 'Warrior' Variar was able to backheel the ball in. 0 - 1. After 32 minutes, Sahura's Michal Štěpán burst through the central defence and let loose a cannonball of a shot, scoring for 0 - 2. The teams went for the halftime break at 0 - 2. Sahura enjoyed most of the ball, as they maintained 83 percent of possession.

With 61 minutes played, a quick exchange of passes on the left wing freed Venkat 'Warrior' Variar of Sahura to slip through the defence and score another goal for the visitors. That made the score 0 - 3. 68 minutes into the match, the visitors put themselves ahead 0 - 4 as Venkat 'Warrior' Variar finished off an attack from the left with a spectacular scissors kick. That was his third goal of the match - a hat trick for Venkat 'Warrior' Variar. The players of Sahura now seemed to think the job was done and acted more defensively, just waiting for the ref to blow the final whistle. Fuad 'The Enforcer' Bin-Jaber left the field with a smile on his face as he was substituted 70 minutes into the game, as his team was in the lead. Naser Khallali was the replacement. After the ball was lifted in from the left, Venkat 'Warrior' Variar was on his own in the home side's penalty area and should have scored after 78 minutes, but missed, probably due to lack of concentration. The corner kick from Mohammad 'The Outsider' Uyaynah was powerfully met by the head of Thadäus Huck to make the score 0 - 5. The coach of Sahura was happy with the game so far, but still wanted to change the line up. After 85 minutes, Azmi Hamdan came on for Mohammad 'The Outsider' Uyaynah. As Mohammad 'The Outsider' Uyaynah exited the field, Yiannis 'The Mummy' Tsiolas volunteered to be the new set pieces taker. Fritz Polak wanted to play on, but the Sahura coach had other ideas, and he was replaced 89 minutes into the game by Habib Ibrahim. Possession in the forty-five minutes was dominated by Sahura, with 84 percent of the ball.

Barcelona's top performer was clearly Wouter Temmerman. Gabi Mitache on the other hand, had a terrible day. Sahura's best player was Venkat 'Warrior' Variar. On the other hand, Habib Ibrahim's play was disheartening. The match ends 0 - 5.
