26037 spectators had come to "Rasta house" arena this cloudy day. They're dreaming of a white Christmas, but there's no precipitation yet. Francisco Casillas was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Mohd Ramzi bin Ismail and Yannik Koschembahr. Everyone was excited about the upcoming Rēzekne rivalry match and the crowd was divided evenly. Rastafari started off with a 4-4-2 lineup. The following players had been selected: Schöttel - Mirchev, Stupnikov, Mendoza, Dryžys - Śniadecki, Martins, Gavrilescu, Lazdiņš - Dalpas, Uçkaç.

Varenie had chosen a strategic 4-5-1 formation. The following players took the field: Štelle - Kairāns, Benefelds, Svetlykh, Bondars - Dāvidsons, Thörnner, Gebel, Druzhinin, Kļaviņš - Wyrobek.

Rastafari mostly ignored the flanks in favor of their ability to attack in the middle. Varenie's H. Bondars gave the visitors a 0 - 1 lead after 3 minutes with a superb strike from the right. I. Gebel was first to reach a long ball launched through the center from Varenie's defense 22 minutes into the game. He managed to keep his cool and beat the keeper to make the score 0 - 2. Rastafari players heard their coach's words ringing in their ears and steered their wing attacks to the middle instead. The teams went for the halftime break at 0 - 2. Rastafari were doing a good job holding on to the ball, with 62 percent of possession.

By working their way through the middle, Rastafari refused to be intimidated – their efforts finally led to B. Uçkaç managing to slip the ball past the keeper to make the score 1 - 2. Rastafari were determined to attack in the middle, even their wing attacks ended up coming through the center. With a shot lofted in from just outside the penalty area 75 minutes in, B. Uçkaç of Rastafari evened the score to 2 - 2. 78 minutes into the game, H. Mirchev had to leave the field due to a knee injury. In came L. Noè. 79 minutes into the game, T. Thörnner had a great chance to put his team ahead, but his kick from the left went wide. The visitors' central defense should have had no trouble clearing the pass to G. Martins, but the Rastafari player managed to shrug them off and fire a low shot that 5-holed the keeper to give his team the lead. 3 - 2! The statistics showed Rastafari in control of the ball, with 65 percent possession.

G. Martins performed admirably for Rastafari. On the other hand, P. Stupnikov's play was disheartening. Most important Varenie player was A. Druzhinin. Hopefully the holidays will cheer A. Benefelds up after that dismal performance, though. The match ends 3 - 2.
