Using their counter-attacking abilities was the strategy of choice for Rochdale on this day, taking advantage of their outstanding level with that tactic. Coming in from the right, Rochdale had a good opportunity to convert on a counterattack after 20 minutes, but Gianluca Carlo Pitzalis's attempt to finish was easily stopped. Chellappan Swami of Karak seemed to be floating in the air as he elegantly headed in to make the score 0 - 1 after a corner kick that was nicely executed by Shobit Kini. The home crowd was not impressed when Pranav Phadnis came in from the right, shooting hard to score after 32 minutes. Karak were now up 0 - 2. With the clock showing 34 minutes played, a great pass from the defensive line of Rochdale resulted in a counterattack that was smoothly brought under control by Yeoh Puay Long in the centre of the opposition's penalty area, but his finish went high. 37 minutes in, Karak's Shobit Kini received a yellow card for going into a challenge studs first. Dean 'The Guv'nor' Yates was the unlucky victim and couldn't continue the game, so Rochdale's Mischa Büsser had to come off the bench. 0 - 2 was the score after the first half. Possession in this half belonged to Karak, who controlled the ball 58 percent of the time.

Rochdale's defence sent a ball soaring up the middle on a beautiful counterattack with 50 minutes gone, but Mischa Büsser's finish was met by the reaching hands of the keeper. Karak's Chellappan Swami got himself booked for a foul. After 67 minutes Karak's Chintan Kumar limped slightly after a late challenge, but he was able to continue. Rochdale had a great opportunity to score following a counterattack after 76 minutes, but Nitin Agrawal's shot from the left sailed high over the bar. Karak enjoyed most of the ball, as they maintained 60 percent of possession.

Rochdale's best player was Mischa Büsser. 方 (Fang) 子楠 (Zinan) was a disappointment, however. Karak's top performer was clearly Shailesh Mashelkar. On the other hand, Shobit Kini's play was disheartening. The match ends 0 - 2.
