A 5-5-0 alignment was the formation of choice for Saxons. They fielded: Ornelas - Bonnafous, Næs, Olguín, Jensen, Lek - á Nesi, Nafzinger, Molina Moreno, Aristotelous, Haraldsen -.

Bergamot started off with a 5-3-2 lineup. Starters: Azzi - Salici, Stancarone, Birindelli, Robescu, Inversi - Mola, Felici Ridolfi, Cicuta - Polizzi, Scuffi.

Counter-attacking seemed to be the preferred strategy of Bergamot, taking advantage of their titanic level with that tactic. Bergamot were pushed back, and had many dangerous counterattacks. An impressive one came 15 minutes into the match, but Guglielmo Scuffi narrowly missed the free kick attempt that was awarded as a result of a foul. After 19 minutes, Philippe Bonnafous sent the corner kick right to Kristoffur 'Messi' á Nesi who headed it sharply past the keeper. 1 - 0! After 31 minutes, the defensive line of Bergamot created a counterattack through the middle that gave Stefano Stancarone a good look at the goal, but his shot glanced harmlessly off the crossbar. Halftime score was 1 - 0. Possession in this half belonged to Saxons, who controlled the ball 70 percent of the time.

With 54 minutes gone, a long pass from the defence of Bergamot resulted in a counterattack that set Basilio Polizzi free through the middle, but the keeper made a spectacular diving save. Saxons were given a gift! The ref dubiously awarded them a penalty 55 minutes into the match, which was neatly put away by Philippe Bonnafous. 2 - 0 for the home side. Content with how the game was proceeding, the Saxons coach let Anselm Bellet replace Eyðgrímur 'Moustache Man' Jensen after 59 minutes. Óla Jákup 'Sidewinder' Næs left the field with a smile on his face as he was substituted 59 minutes into the game, as his team was in the lead. Sámal Mattias á Bakka was the replacement. After 70 minutes, Bergamot switched Ferruccio Cicuta with Ugo Scanferla, hoping for a quick impact on the pitch. Still ahead in the game after 70 minutes, Saxons made some tactical adjustments. Henry 'Happy' Haraldsen and Johnny Nafzinger swapped positions. Johnny Nafzinger wanted to play on, but the Saxons coach had other ideas, and he was replaced 71 minutes into the game by Jón av Teigum. Although the whole team were struggling to impress, Bergamot's Guglielmo Scuffi was singled out as being the problem as he was called off the pitch after 75 minutes. Marco Marrazzo was given a chance to change things around. With Guglielmo Scuffi no longer on the pitch, Johnny Birindelli became the new set pieces taker. The home side's Philippe Bonnafous came close to extending the lead 76 minutes into the game. His shot came in from the right hand side but Libero Azzi managed to save it with an unbelievable reaction stop. Coming in from the right, Bergamot had a good opportunity to convert on a counterattack after 77 minutes, but Cesare Inversi's attempt to finish was easily stopped. Bergamot's defence sent a ball soaring up the middle on a beautiful counterattack with 82 minutes gone, but Ugo Scanferla's finish was met by the reaching hands of the keeper. Bergamot needed a fresh pair of legs on the field, and after 85 minutes Enrico Mauro Felici Ridolfi made way for Pierpaolo Badocchi. Saxons had most of the ball, with 61 percent of possession.

The most dominating Saxons player was without a doubt Anselm Bellet. Jón av Teigum was a disappointment, however. Libero Azzi performed admirably for Bergamot. However, Ugo Scanferla made a disastrous appearance. The match ends 2 - 0.
