Overcast weather free of rain made for a crowd turnout of 51415 at Stadium Essential today. Rowin Offermans was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Dante Maris and Roland Zagulski. A 3-5-2 alignment was the formation of choice for Ripinieki. Lineup: Erkek - Parra, Ølholm, Font - Barda, Petrovs, Neuville, Soinne, Zaldos - Olkhovik, Tulupov.

Ozolnieki decided to use a 3-5-2 set up. The following players took the field: Dengiz - Klashnov, Canche, Jablonskis - Pedersen, Reps, Cominotti, Borgstedt, Steinwender - Zaragoza, Bergelt.

Ozolnieki were relying on their ability to counter-attack. Ripinieki broke through on the left 12 minutes into the game, with A. Soinne firing in from an acute angle to give the home side a 1 - 0 lead. G. Neuville increased the lead for Ripinieki to 2 - 0, getting a head onto a hooked ball from the right. The ball looked to have taken a deflection on the way in, but he's claiming it! The visitors replied 30 minutes into the game, reducing the home side's lead to 2 - 1, as B. Zaragoza dashed up the middle, easily lobbing the ball over the home team's keeper. The head of A. Canche connected with a corner kick after 31 minutes, and the ball ended up with D. Klashnov of Ozolnieki who blasted the ball into the net, making the score 2 - 2. Ripinieki took the lead 34 minutes into the game by 3 - 2, as G. Parra elegantly received a long range pass through the middle, finishing off with a half-volley shot just below the bar. A really bad tackle inside the penalty area 39 minutes into the match gave the referee no other choice but to award the visiting Ozolnieki a penalty. Ē. Reps knocked it home. 3 - 3 It was 3 - 3 at the break. Ripinieki claimed to have seen most of the ball, and the statistics agreed with them - possession being 54 percent.

Ozolnieki's Ē. Reps left the field after 63 minutes because of a nasty blow to the shin. His replacement was C. O'Shannaig. A well placed corner kick from B. Jablonskis was followed by D. Klashnov's hard but accurate header. The well executed routine resulted in a goal for Ozolnieki, the score now 3 - 4. 77 minutes in, and Ripinieki were able to score the equalising goal to make it 4 - 4 when J. Petrovs picked up a pass coming in from the right and chipped it past the away team's keeper. After 79 minutes of play, S. Olkhovik gave the home team a 5 - 4 lead after an attack coming in from the right. With the clock showing 82 minutes played, a great pass from the defensive line of Ozolnieki resulted in a counterattack that was smoothly brought under control by B. Zaragoza in the centre of the opposition's penalty area, but his finish went high. Ripinieki had most of the ball, with 55 percent of possession.

The most dominating Ripinieki player was without a doubt S. Olkhovik. On the other hand, M. Ølholm's play was disheartening. Ozolnieki's top performer was clearly B. Zaragoza. B. Jablonskis on the other hand, had a terrible day. The match ends 5 - 4.
