The weather was pretty good, and a crowd of 4069 had shown up at Springfield Park for the match. Sugar Zalakain was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Tito Elias and . A 4-5-1 alignment was the formation of choice for Rochdale. They fielded: Colbourne - Agrawal, Porter, Sumerel, Lukić - Cleuren, Willis, Pajak, Büsser, Szachta - Medina Abascal.

Wirschtlstand decided to use a 5-4-1 set up. The following players took the field: Faro - Artamonov, Iordăchioaie, Walerowski, 迪鸿 (Dihong), Yura - Rosenberg, Dutheil, Csicsák, Juhász - Bonci.

Rochdale were mostly trying to use their magical skill at attacking on the flanks. Counter-attacking seemed to be the preferred strategy of Wirschtlstand, taking advantage of their divine (+1) level with that tactic. Rochdale will have to do without Nitin Agrawal for a time, due to a bad foot injury at the 17 minute mark. He was substituted by 方 (Fang) 子楠 (Zinan). Jean-Hugues Cleuren became the new Rochdale captain. The opposing supporters gave the referee an earful when he only gave Gábor Csicsák from Wirschtlstand a yellow card after a mistimed challenge from behind 18 minutes into the game. That was far too lenient! With 33 minutes gone, Andrei Iordăchioaie suddenly found himself completely free on the right wing when a counterattack by Wirschtlstand caught their opponents by surprise. Only a great save by the opposing keeper prevented him from scoring. 34 minutes in, Rochdale's Jaume Medina Abascal received a yellow card for going into a challenge studs first. Garth 'Vader' Sumerel could have put Rochdale into the lead after 36 minutes, but the free kick went just wide. A counterattack by Wirschtlstand after 37 minutes could have resulted in a goal, but Fabio 'Sadist' Bonci, coming in on the left, couldn't get the shot off. 38 minutes into the game, Wirschtlstand seemed a little tentative in their play as their organization fell to passable. Halftime score was 0 - 0. Possession in the forty-five minutes was dominated by Rochdale, with 66 percent of the ball.

The Wirschtlstand players spent the break getting a rerun of the team's tactical organisation and regained a solid organisation when the game started again. Wirschtlstand's Fabio 'Sadist' Bonci startled András Juhász with an unexpected pass. Unfortunately, the receiver was too stunned by the play to convert the perfect setup into a goal. 56 minutes in, Wirschtlstand appeared unsure on how to play and their organisation was only passable. Rochdale's Karol 'Vorderman' Szachta was shown a yellow card after 58 minutes for slicing down an opponent. 64 minutes into the match, the speedy András Juhász easily outpaced 方 (Fang) 子楠 (Zinan), chipped the keeper and made the score 0 - 1. Wirschtlstand's defence sent a ball soaring up the middle on a beautiful counterattack with 68 minutes gone, but Zachary Rosenberg's finish was met by the reaching hands of the keeper. Rochdale had most of the ball, with 65 percent of possession.

Rochdale's best player was Jaume Medina Abascal. 方 (Fang) 子楠 (Zinan) on the other hand, had a terrible day. The most dominating Wirschtlstand player was without a doubt 郑 (Zheng) 迪鸿 (Dihong). On the other hand, András Juhász's play was disheartening. The match ends 0 - 1.
