2104 spectators had found their way to Per-Usir, despite the heavy rain. Kenny Nyami was the appointed referee with assistance provided by and . Sahura had chosen a strategic 5-3-2 formation. Lineup: Polak - Meulemans, Uyaynah, Tharwat, Huck, Fayek - Abd El Fattah, Hamdan, Bin-Jaber - Hanebrink, Štěpán.

Roosters started off with a 3-5-2 lineup. Starters: Gillard - Balme, Nilsson, Le Gall - Évrard, Débat, Page, Chabot, Alexis - André, Clatot.

Sahura were relying on their brilliant ability to counter-attack. It was a bad day for the usually speedy Jan-Okko Meulemans. The mud seemed to slow him down. 30 minutes into the match, the referee signalled for a Sahura substitution. Venkat 'Warrior' Variar came on for Janis Hanebrink. As the clock reached 30 minutes, Sahura decided to regroup. Fuad 'The Enforcer' Bin-Jaber gave Jan-Okko Meulemans a little pat on the back as they changed positions on the pitch. As the 31 minute mark approached, the Sahura coach decided it was time for a substitution. Jan-Okko Meulemans reluctantly made way for Naser Khallali on the pitch. Sahura's counterattacks created a good chance for Thadäus Huck on the right after 34 minutes, but he could only look on with dismay as his strike rebounded off the crossbar. Yves André's lightning pace was too much for Thadäus Huck who could only look on as the Roosters player blasted one home. 0 - 1. The visitors' Yves André took advantage of a misunderstanding between the home side's goalie and centre backs 38 minutes into the match. 0 - 2 for Roosters. As the game started to slip away for Sahura, the manager decided to change the tactical approach. Azmi Hamdan received some harsh words from his coach after he acted foolishly 41 minutes into the match, probably out of lack of experience, and almost let an opponent score. 44 minutes in, Sahura's Naser Khallali received a yellow card for going into a challenge studs first. Roosters's Per Nilsson was shown a yellow card after 44 minutes for slicing down an opponent. Naser Khallali's knee will be throbbing for days, but thankfully for Sahura, he bravely continued in the match. 0 - 2 was the halftime score. Roosters claimed to have seen most of the ball, and the statistics agreed with them - possession being 60 percent.

Sahura almost scored after a swift counterattack 59 minutes into the game, but Michal Štěpán put the shot from the left flank just outside the goal. Although the whole team were struggling to impress, Sahura's Azmi Hamdan was singled out as being the problem as he was called off the pitch after 66 minutes. Menelao Rienzo was given a chance to change things around. Gabriel Débat was uncomfortable with the soggy pitch as he couldn't move the ball around with his usual grace. When Mustafa Tharwat left the game because of a back injury after 75 minutes, Sahura had to continue a man short due to there being no available replacements. Neither team was controlling the possession at this point in the match, with the stats showing a 50:50 split.

Sahura's best player was Fritz Polak. Naser Khallali on the other hand, had a terrible day. Roosters's top performer was clearly Yves André. On the other hand, Daniel Évrard's play was disheartening. The match ends 0 - 2.
