Fairly good weather for football had drawn a crowd of 4561 to Stadium Arcadium. Genís Isach was the appointed referee with assistance provided by and Herrik van Dongen. Krosnianka tactics involved an interesting 4-4-2 combination. Starters: Keppler - Galun, Gaiński, Guillot, Haas - Łukasiuk, Lepers, Cabral, Otero - Sagaydachny, Branco.

A 5-4-1 alignment was the formation of choice for Rochdale. The following players took the field: Colbourne - Yates, Pajak, Sánchez Barriga, Sumerel, Lukić - Cleuren, Agrawal, Willis, Szachta - Medina Abascal.

Krosnianka clearly had decided to counter-attack when they could, taking advantage of their outstanding level with that tactic. For their match strategy, Rochdale had decided to use their magical ability to counter-attack whenever possible. 7 minutes into the game, Karol 'Vorderman' Szachta almost gave the visitors the lead, as he clipped a delicate lob over the keeper, but the ball glanced harmlessly off the crossbar. 16 minutes into the game, Jaume Medina Abascal had a great chance to put his team ahead, but his kick from the left went wide. 17 minutes into the match, Rochdale nearly took the lead, as Clint Willis broke through on the right. Jürgen Keppler made the save, however. Krosnianka almost scored after a counterattack 27 minutes into the match, but Nuno Rosa 'El Niño' Branco took a shot from the left that landed harmlessly in the side of the net. Krosnianka's Ivan Sagaydachny was shown a yellow card after 32 minutes for slicing down an opponent. A well placed corner kick from Dean 'The Guv'nor' Yates was followed by Gorka Sánchez Barriga's hard but accurate header. The well executed routine resulted in a goal for Rochdale, the score now 0 - 1. 0 - 1 was the halftime score. Rochdale claimed to have seen most of the ball, and the statistics agreed with them - possession being 60 percent.

With 46 minutes played, the Krosnianka coach decided a substitution may help turn the game around. Julien Brianceau came on, Jürgen Keppler had to leave the fray. Nuno Rosa 'El Niño' Branco was the new captain of Krosnianka - handed the armband by the departing player. With the scoreboard showing that 58 minutes had been played, Rochdale nearly put themselves up another goal after Nitin Agrawal came through on the left. Fortunately for the home crowd, the keeper made the save. After 59 minutes, the defensive line of Krosnianka created a counterattack through the middle that gave Ivan Sagaydachny a good look at the goal, but his shot glanced harmlessly off the crossbar. The game was close to savage at times, and Krosnianka's Ivan Sagaydachny received a second yellow card after 65 minutes; his ticket out of the game. Although the whole team were struggling to impress, Krosnianka's Juan Otero was singled out as being the problem as he was called off the pitch after 70 minutes. Sobiesław Hełmecki was given a chance to change things around. The Rochdale players could smell victory in the air. Gorka Sánchez Barriga wasn't in a hurry to leave the field as he was substituted for Myroslav Golovnya after 70 minutes. Krosnianka's Sobiesław Hełmecki made an attempt at equalising 80 minutes into the match, coming in from the right, but the ball hit the post and the defence easily cleared the rebound. 84 minutes into the game Rochdale managed a counterattack, but Nitin Agrawal took a soft shot from the left flank that was easy prey for the alert keeper. Rochdale had most of the ball, with 51 percent of possession.

The most dominating Krosnianka player was without a doubt Sobiesław Hełmecki. Julien Brianceau was a disappointment, however. Myroslav Golovnya performed admirably for Rochdale. On the other hand, Dean 'The Guv'nor' Yates's play was disheartening. The match ends 0 - 1.
