Karak 0 - 1 Brann

In a special plea, the Karak manager had gone on local radio to tell fans how important their support is to the team. As the players entered the field, the crowd rose to their feet and started chanting their names.

The 3566 spectators at King Suro Memorial Field were in for an afternoon of sunshine. was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Jan Valen and Georgi Moskov. Karak tactics involved an interesting 5-5-0 combination. The following players took the field: Zeeshan - Kumar, Kini, Zaman, Kalsang, Oliveira Abreu - Phadnis, Mashelkar, Rastogi, Dikholakar, Chakraborty -.

A 3-4-3 alignment was the formation of choice for Brann. The following players had been chosen: Bethusy-Huc - Leenaers, Ryneveen, Fjelblad - Couceiro, Kijas, Cotellessa, Hervouet - Avidar, Errea, Bertieaux.

Today, Brann's strategy involved concentrating on the flanks for their attacks, taking advantage of their world class level with that tactic. It was a hot and sunny day, and several players seemed worn out. Maybe this was why Salvatore Cotellessa found an unusual amount of space for his snappy footwork. 35 minutes in, Brann's Robbert Jan Bertieaux received a yellow card for going into a challenge studs first. 0 - 0 was the halftime score. Possession in the forty-five minutes was dominated by Karak, with 57 percent of the ball.

Proving his experience, Daniel Errea scored 0 - 1 for Brann after putting some pressure on the opposing defence at a critical moment. 66 minutes in, Brann appeared unsure on how to play and their organisation was only passable. Karak had to make a substitution after 72 minutes. Rameez Zaman limped off the field and was replaced by Sher 'Khan' Khar. With Rameez Zaman no longer on the pitch, Sher 'Khan' Khar took over free kick duty. Beniamin Kijas left the field with a smile on his face as he was substituted 75 minutes into the game, as his team was in the lead. Fridtjof 'Pesen' Wegdahl was the replacement. The coach of Brann was happy with the game so far, but still wanted to change the line up. After 80 minutes, Jes 'Kniksen' Steinicke came on for Olivio Couceiro. As Olivio Couceiro left the field, the coach signaled to Ofek Avidar to be the new set pieces taker. Hessel Ryneveen wanted to play on, but the Brann coach had other ideas, and he was replaced 85 minutes into the game by Máximo Martín Cirigliano. Possession in this half belonged to Karak, who controlled the ball 60 percent of the time.

The most dominating Karak player was without a doubt Shailesh Mashelkar. Sher 'Khan' Khar turned in a dismal performance, however. Brann's best player was Jes 'Kniksen' Steinicke. Fridtjof 'Pesen' Wegdahl on the other hand, had a terrible day. The match ends 0 - 1.
