In the press conference before the game, the manager of Saxons could not contain his contempt for the style of play preferred by Tricolor. "It's primitive, and we hope to expose that today".

Clear skies welcomed the 2893 spectators who had made their way to Estádio das Laranjeiras. was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Håkan Ulvmar and Filip Gadella. Tricolor started off with a 4-5-1 lineup. The following players took the field: Tarawaly - Hodgton, Martin, Ralson, Smithson - Rahim, Rutherford, Sweeney, Adkins, Viem - Lynch.

Saxons had chosen a strategic 3-5-2 formation. Starters: Głaszczka - Janecki, Bareyre, Buron Cuadrado - Florentz, Næs, Christensen, Karbech Mouritsen, Jensen - Tarvainen, Schous.

Alan Sweeney's lack of experience almost gave Saxons a goal after 5 minutes, but the shot went right into the keeper's arms. With 6 minutes played, the home side managed to get a 1 - 0 lead as Rob Viem flipped the ball in after a cross from the right. Rob Viem unleashed a swerving effort from the right that the visitors' keeper did well to tip wide. Tricolor's Abe 'Superstar' Lynch had an excellent opportunity after 14 minutes, shooting after receiving a pass from the right hand side, but he missed the goal by miles! The referee showed Tricolor's Abe 'Superstar' Lynch the yellow card after a particularly nasty challenge. Alonso Buron Cuadrado was the unlucky victim and couldn't continue the game, so Saxons's Kristoffur 'Messi' á Nesi had to come off the bench. Coming from the right, Alexander Hodgton almost managed to score another goal for Tricolor, but his header was tipped over the bar by the visitors' keeper. A speedy charge from the left side of the field increased the lead of Tricolor to 2 - 0 as Abe 'Superstar' Lynch finished it off competently, firing in from an acute angle. The teams went for the halftime break at 2 - 0. Tricolor enjoyed most of the ball, as they maintained 65 percent of possession.

With 63 minutes played, the Saxons coach decided a substitution may help turn the game around. Finnbogi Hansen came on, Sámal Christensen had to leave the fray. After 68 minutes, Alex Rutherford put Tricolor ahead 3 - 0 when he rose to head in a cross from the right wing. Alex Rutherford could have put Tricolor up one more, but he fired into the side netting after breaking free on the left after 77 minutes. Símin Gutti Karbech Mouritsen of Saxons was booked for kicking the ball away after the whistle. Things were deteriorating for the away team as Tricolor scored another to make it 4 - 0 after a left side attack resulted in a goal for Boris Martin after 81 minutes. By now, the players in Tricolor felt that victory was guaranteed and began to play it safe, focusing on defence and not risking too much going forward. Saxons's Yehoash Florentz got himself booked for a foul. Saxons's Finnbogi Hansen was shown a yellow card after 84 minutes for slicing down an opponent. Tricolor had most of the ball, with 65 percent of possession.

Most important Tricolor player was Alexei Smithson. Rob Viem on the other hand, had a terrible day. The most dominating Saxons player was without a doubt Jesse Tarvainen. Yehoash Florentz turned in a dismal performance, however. The match ends 4 - 0.
