Pigs started off with a 3-4-3 lineup. The following players took the field: Fortin - Turanskiy, Janić, Clark - Arkell, Köves, Chudasama, Oram - Keskin, Harrison, O'Grady.

Manuele Prestandrea would have preferred to play on, but his coach decided otherwise. Daniel 'The Darkness' Rolník entered the game for Falcons as the match clock showed 1 minutes. After 2 minutes, the Falcons coach wanted to see a new face on the pitch, waving Mikhail Llosa off the field. Oldřich 'The Ghost' Páleník took his place. As Mikhail Llosa exited the field, Pascal 'The Axe' Stuhldreher volunteered to be the new set pieces taker. Ivano Liponi became the new Falcons captain. İzak 'The Scourge' Özbeken got left behind when Pigs's Lefter Keskin left scorch marks in the turf 20 minutes, finishing off with a blisteringly swift strike. 0-1! A drive down the left side allowed Lefter Keskin to get in close and score another goal for Pigs after 23 minutes, taking the score to 0 - 2. After this, you could see that the players of Pigs were more interested in killing time than scoring more goals. Pigs increased their lead after 25 minutes when Rob Arkell broke through on the right, upping the score to 0 - 3, much to the home crowd's dismay. After 35 minutes a combination in the middle resulted in a through ball for Barnabás Köves who increased Pigs's lead to 0 - 4. With 40 minutes played, Glenn Harrison nearly put the visitors another one up as he broke through in the middle and fired from just outside the box, but his shot passed just over the bar. 0 - 4 was the score after the first half. Pigs enjoyed most of the ball, as they maintained 51 percent of possession.

Lefter Keskin was, after 56 minutes, almost able to extend the visitors' lead with a well placed diving header after the ball had looped into the centre, but the home side's keeper Michalis 'Soter' Vafiadakis made the save. It took several tries, but Falcons managed to break through on the left after 59 minutes, getting the ball to Daniel 'The Darkness' Rolník who easily reduced the lead to make the score 1 - 4. Ross Oram wanted to play on, but the Pigs coach had other ideas, and he was replaced 60 minutes into the game by Garry Bell. After 60 minutes, Falcons used a short break in the game to take new instructions from their coach. With the scoreboard showing that 60 minutes had been played, Pigs nearly put themselves up another goal after Fitzroy O'Grady came through on the left. Fortunately for the home crowd, the keeper made the save. After 69 minutes, Falcons switched Heinar Zellhausen with Merijn 'Poliorcetes' Esseling, hoping for a quick impact on the pitch. Pigs's Lefter Keskin had to watch the rest of the game from the sidelines, after twisting his ankle with 73 minutes having been played. Rick Borneo was the replacement. The Falcons coach was desperate to reverse his team's fortunes in the game, and ordered his team to change strategy. Falcons refused to be intimidated and, breaking through the middle, Oldřich 'The Ghost' Páleník managed to slip the ball home for 2 - 4. Pigs came close to extending their lead as Barnabás Köves delivered a low effort on goal from the right after 77 minutes, but the angle was too narrow and the shot went harmlessly into the side netting. Pigs claimed to have seen most of the ball, and the statistics agreed with them - possession being 52 percent.

Loke 'Naglfar' Dommergaard performed admirably for Falcons. Michalis 'Soter' Vafiadakis turned in a dismal performance, however. Pigs's top performer was clearly Glenn Harrison. On the other hand, Rob Arkell's play was disheartening. The match ends 2 - 4.
