Dark skies made the crowd of 2685 at Per-Usir a little nervous, but the rain held off. Manuel Melchiorri was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Magne Andersen and . Sahura tactics involved an interesting 5-3-2 combination. The following players took the field: Polak - Søndrål, Abd El Fattah, Uyaynah, Meulemans, Tsiolas - Bin-Jaber, Huck, Candelli - Variar, Štěpán.

A 3-5-2 alignment was the formation of choice for Rünenberg. Starters: Noftziger - Lanz, Zainzinger, Letellier - Straub, Felgenhauer, Augsburger, Aoustin, Gremminger - Dübendorfer, Sarver.

For their match strategy, Sahura had decided to use their world class ability to counter-attack whenever possible. Today, Rünenberg's strategy involved concentrating on the flanks for their attacks, taking advantage of their world class level with that tactic. Rünenberg's Guido Dübendorfer showed his experience, anticipating the outcome of the opponent's defensive clearance and positioning himself perfectly to volley in an unstoppable shot from the edge of the box. 0 - 1. After 20 minutes, a long pass from Rünenberg's Klemens Augsburger caught the defence out of position. Guido Dübendorfer collected the ball, and with the goal at his mercy calmly rolled the ball just inside the post. 0 - 2. Coming in from the right, Sahura had a good opportunity to convert on a counterattack after 31 minutes, but Venkat 'Warrior' Variar's attempt to finish was easily stopped. Sven Sarver increased the visitors' lead by putting a volley away after a pass from the right. 0 - 3. At this point, it was obvious that the players of Rünenberg lowered the tempo and became more defensively oriented. Sahura had a great opportunity to score following a counterattack after 39 minutes, but Michal Štěpán's shot from the left sailed high over the bar. Rünenberg had a good opportunity to attack in the middle, but remembered their instructions to focus on wing attacks instead. A defender managed to keep the ball from crossing the goal-line after a curling shot coming in from the right from Guido Dübendorfer after 40 minutes, and prevented Rünenberg from going up another goal. Halftime score was 0 - 3. Rünenberg had most of the ball, with 72 percent of possession.

Content with how the game was proceeding, the Rünenberg coach let Remo Ringenburg replace Ilario Zainzinger after 46 minutes. Ludovic Felgenhauer wanted to play on, but the Rünenberg coach had other ideas, and he was replaced 46 minutes into the game by Klemens Heimgartner. With 50 minutes played, Bruno Aoustin 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. It was obvious that Rünenberg had instructions to attack on the wings instead of in the middle. Had it not been for one of the home defenders, Remo Ringenburg would have put Rünenberg up another goal 59 minutes into the match with his audacious lob from the right wing. Sahura's Thadäus Huck left the field after 63 minutes because of a nasty blow to the shin. His replacement was Menelao Rienzo. Rünenberg were determined to attack on the wing and their central attempts were constantly abandoned in favour of the wings. After the ball was lifted in from the left, Bruno Aoustin was on his own in the home side's penalty area and should have scored after 66 minutes, but missed, probably due to lack of concentration. Sadik 'Cobra' Abd El Fattah of Sahura received a yellow card after 69 minutes for unsportsmanlike behaviour. 71 minutes into the match, the visitors put themselves ahead 0 - 4 as Guido Dübendorfer finished off an attack from the left with a spectacular scissors kick. This third goal completed a hattrick for Guido Dübendorfer. With 75 minutes played, the Sahura coach decided a substitution may help turn the game around. Naser Khallali came on, Fuad 'The Enforcer' Bin-Jaber had to leave the fray. Players in Rünenberg heard their coach's words ringing in their ears and steered their central attacks to the wings instead. With the scoreboard showing that 77 minutes had been played, Rünenberg nearly put themselves up another goal after Alessandro Gremminger came through on the left. Fortunately for the home crowd, the keeper made the save. After 80 minutes, Sahura switched Mohammad 'The Outsider' Uyaynah with Azmi Hamdan, hoping for a quick impact on the pitch. Rünenberg enjoyed most of the ball, as they maintained 70 percent of possession.

Sahura's best player was Venkat 'Warrior' Variar. Sadik 'Cobra' Abd El Fattah turned in a dismal performance, however. Guido Dübendorfer performed admirably for Rünenberg. However, Sven Sarver made a disastrous appearance. The match ends 0 - 4.
