A scorching day at Stadium Arcadium, where 3297 spectators were in place for today's match. Harald Haagensen was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Steffen Iversen and Nélson Neves. Krosnianka decided to use a 2-5-3 set up. The following players took the field: Keppler - Galun, Guillot - Stitle, Otrocki, Hełmecki, Szolc, Fatić - Wolsztyniak, Branco, Mämmelä.

X-Team started off with a 3-5-2 lineup. Starters: Stanciu - Bilir, Vânătoru, Răvaş - Brânzea, Tunaru, Liekfeldt, Neaga, Tiron - Kuşçu, Rânja.

X-Team clearly had decided to counter-attack when they could, taking advantage of their passable level with that tactic. The visitors' central defence should have had no trouble clearing the pass to Nuno Rosa 'El Niño' Branco, but the Krosnianka player managed to shrug them off and fired a low shot past the keeper to give his team the lead. 1 - 0! 16 minutes into the game, X-Team seemed a little tentative in their play as their organization fell to poor. Krosnianka were given a gift! The ref dubiously awarded them a penalty 18 minutes into the match, which was neatly put away by Mickaël 'Guillotine' Guillot. 2 - 0 for the home side. By now, the players in Krosnianka felt that victory was guaranteed and began to play it safe, focusing on defence and not risking too much going forward. After 20 minutes Pekka Mämmelä made a speedy advance and dropped the ball to Czesław Wolsztyniak who shuffled it past the keeper. The score was now 3 - 0. Pekka Mämmelä had a fantastic opportunity to put Krosnianka up another goal 25 minutes into the match after a pass through the middle set him free, but he fired just over the crossbar. After 26 minutes, the defensive line of X-Team created a counterattack through the middle that gave Vlad Vânătoru a good look at the goal, but his shot glanced harmlessly off the crossbar. A magnificent combination in the middle resulted in Krosnianka's Zahid Fatić increasing the lead to 4 - 0. Things were going to get worse for the visitors. Sobiesław Hełmecki squirmed through their central defence after 42 minutes, increasing the lead to 5 - 0. Krosnianka's Czesław Wolsztyniak refused to leave the field after injuring his achilles tendon after 44 minutes. 5 - 0 was the halftime score. Possession in the forty-five minutes was dominated by Krosnianka, with 72 percent of the ball.

During the break, X-Team's coach went through the team's tactics yet again, getting them up to passable organisation. Content with how the game was proceeding, the Krosnianka coach let Julien Brianceau replace Jürgen Keppler after 46 minutes. Nuno Rosa 'El Niño' Branco was handed the Krosnianka captain's armband. The Krosnianka players could smell victory in the air. Zahid Fatić wasn't in a hurry to leave the field as he was substituted for Christer Fröstål after 46 minutes. With 61 minutes played, Krosnianka's Damian 'Rocky' Otrocki almost extended the lead, but his shot from the left glanced off the top of the bar to fall behind the net. X-Team's Mihai Tiron was shown a yellow card for standing over the ball and blocking an opponent's quick free kick after 62 minutes. 73 minutes into the game, X-Team seemed to suffer a certain amount of confusion and they fell to a inadequate level of organisation. Nuno Rosa 'El Niño' Branco wanted to play on, but the Krosnianka coach had other ideas, and he was replaced 75 minutes into the game by Adam Kuchciński. Czesław Wolsztyniak was the new captain of Krosnianka - handed the armband by the departing player. Adam Kuchciński could have increased the lead after 82 minutes, but his shot hit the post after a nice combination in the middle of the park. The intense heat forced Ron Galun into making some errors because he couldn't seem to keep up with the others. With 88 minutes played, Krosnianka put themselves up 6 - 0 when the visiting defenders lost the ball to Czesław Wolsztyniak, who came up from the left and proceeded to coolly round the keeper and knock the ball home. A speedy charge from the left side of the field increased the lead of Krosnianka to 7 - 0 as Adam Kuchciński finished it off competently, firing in from an acute angle. Krosnianka increased the lead as Pekka Mämmelä struck to make the score 8 - 0 after an attack from the left left him unmarked in front of the keeper. Krosnianka enjoyed most of the ball, as they maintained 68 percent of possession.

Krosnianka's top performer was clearly Adam Kuchciński. Jérôme Stitle turned in a dismal performance, however. The most dominating X-Team player was without a doubt Ştefan 'The Artist' Neaga. Cătălin Brânzea was a disappointment, however. The match ends 8 - 0.
