The weather was pretty good, and a crowd of 41275 had shown up at Estatio de Messen for the match. Kolja Wittmaack was the appointed referee. Athletic decided to use a 3-5-2 set up. Lineup: Laurītis - Cimino, Inglin, Dominguez - Laig, Kunth, Pellegrin, Borelbach, Florea - Bustamante, Bächli.

A 3-5-2 alignment was the formation of choice for Rotblau. They fielded: Bruyère - Metzler, Menonen, Rigaudeau - Miro, Meillasson, Serena, Laubacher, Vakkilainen - Sundby, Jabłoński.

With 7 minutes played R. Bustamante almost gave the home side the lead with an unexpected free kick set up, but the visitors' S. Bruyère was onto it, grabbing the would be breakthrough ball. In a rapid move 15 minutes into the match, R. Bächli of Athletic lost his man and passed the ball to the unmarked R. Bustamante who easily hit it home to make it 1 - 0. Luckily the ref didn't see him taunting the opposing fans in celebration - naughty boy! E. Laurītis became the hero of the day for the home crowd as he saved a penalty by J. Jabłoński after 17 minutes. A cross coming in on the right hand side left P. Metzler alone in front of the goal after 26 minutes but his shot was woeful. After several obvious shirt pulling incidents, J. Kunth got himself booked. The manager of Athletic was not happy. The visitors refused to give in and, after 40 minutes, J. Jabłoński evened things up as he finished off a perfect pass from the right. 1 - 1 Some great play up the middle by Athletic led to a chance for O. Dominguez to score after 41 minutes, but the shot hit the crossbar. Some quick footwork on the left side of the field 42 minutes into the match left Rotblau's J. Jabłoński completely free to score. 1 - 2 for the visitors. 1 - 2 was the score after the first half. Rotblau had most of the ball, with 59 percent of possession.

The cannonball from 35 metres by D. Miro of Rotblau was an impressive sight, but didn't make it into the net. J. Kunth made a superb strike after 66 minutes with a shot straight in front of the goal after a long ball through the middle, but one of the visitors' defenders got a foot in at the last second and warded it off for a corner. J. Jabłoński received a delicate pass through the home side's central defence after 74 minutes, and chipped it past the flailing keeper to score making it 1 - 3. The Rotblau fans went wild, whilst the home fans started to think about leaving early. That was his third goal of the match - a hat trick for J. Jabłoński. 76 minutes into the game, Rotblau were awarded a penalty and J. Jabłoński was able to increase the visitors' lead to 1 - 4 rolling the ball in by the right post. After this, you could see that the players of Rotblau were more interested in killing time than scoring more goals. J. Jabłoński could have put his team up another goal 79 minutes into the game, after a rush down the left, but his closing shot hit the post. Rotblau enjoyed most of the ball, as they maintained 58 percent of possession.

Athletic's top performer was clearly M. Borelbach. T. Laig on the other hand, had a terrible day. The most dominating Rotblau player was without a doubt O. Sundby. However, J. Jabłoński made a disastrous appearance. The match ends 1 - 4.
