4397 punters turned up at Stadium Arcadium, and despite threatening clouds on the horizon, no rain came. was the appointed referee with assistance provided by and . Krosnianka had chosen a strategic 3-4-3 formation. Lineup: Keppler - Otrocki, Maleta, Guillot - Stitle, Łukasiuk, Otero, Elordi - Rădulescu, Chiaburu, Branco.

A 4-4-2 alignment was the formation of choice for Pigs. Starters: Heerssema - Balogh, Tompkin, Cacavelos, Bell - Arkell, Köves, Scotney, Oram - Keskin, Moody.

Counter-attacking seemed to be the preferred strategy of Krosnianka, taking advantage of their excellent level with that tactic. 15 minutes into the game, Krosnianka seemed to suffer a certain amount of confusion and they fell to a solid level of organisation. Krosnianka made it 1 - 0 as Nuno Rosa 'El Niño' Branco got a touch to the floated corner kick and flicked the ball to Juan Otero who whipped a low drive in off the far post. After 18 minutes, the visitors levelled the scores after Rob Arkell made it through the middle and struck home to make it 1 - 1. The referee showed Krosnianka's Damian 'Rocky' Otrocki the yellow card after a particularly nasty challenge. A free kick aimed at the keeper's far post almost gave Pigs the lead 39 minutes in, but the ball just wasn't able to squirm its way through the defensive wall. The opposing supporters gave the referee an earful when he only gave Nuno Rosa 'El Niño' Branco from Krosnianka a yellow card after a mistimed challenge from behind 40 minutes into the game. That was far too lenient! 41 minutes into the game, Krosnianka had difficulty finding their positions and their organisation dropped to passable. With 42 minutes played, Pigs's well-worked indirect free kick caused havoc in the penalty area, and when the ball eventually fell to Lefter Keskin he gleefully slotted the ball home to make it 1 - 2. 43 minutes into the game, Pigs seemed a little tentative in their play as their organization fell to inadequate. It was 1 - 2 at the break. Pigs claimed to have seen most of the ball, and the statistics agreed with them - possession being 60 percent.

The coach gave his players an extra tactical briefing during the break, and after that Krosnianka had solid organisation. A review of the gameplan helped Pigs get back to a solid organisation when the referee blew his whistle again. The bench was restless, and with 60 minutes passed Krosnianka's coach gave Czesław Wolsztyniak the opportunity the player had been hoping for. Nuno Rosa 'El Niño' Branco reluctantly left the field. After 65 minutes, Pigs felt secure enough to make a tactical change. Garry Bell and Ross Oram assumed each others positions on the field. After 65 minutes, Krosnianka switched Damian 'Rocky' Otrocki with Ron Galun, hoping for a quick impact on the pitch. Krosnianka needed a fresh pair of legs on the field, and after 70 minutes Jürgen Keppler made way for Julien Brianceau. Czesław Wolsztyniak became the new Krosnianka captain. After 70 minutes, a mistake by the home side's left defence allowed Jürgen Tompkin to get through. He outclassed the home side's keeper, adding another goal for the visitors. 1 - 3. With 71 minutes played, Pigs put themselves up 1 - 4 after an attack from the right, caused by a defensive blunder. The scorer was Hector Moody. Pigs increased their lead after 76 minutes when Hector Moody broke through on the right, upping the score to 1 - 5, much to the home crowd's dismay. At this point, it was obvious that the players of Pigs lowered the tempo and became more defensively oriented. The home crowd was not impressed when Xeremías Cacavelos came in from the right, shooting hard to score after 82 minutes. Pigs were now up 1 - 6. Possession in this half belonged to Pigs, who controlled the ball 61 percent of the time.

Krosnianka's top performer was clearly Juan Otero. On the other hand, Viorel-Marian Rădulescu's play was disheartening. The most dominating Pigs player was without a doubt Lefter Keskin. However, Ross Oram made a disastrous appearance. The match ends 1 - 6.
