Weather conditions were fairly good for football, and Shogun's Arena saw a crowd turnout of 44538. Samurais tactics involved an interesting 3-4-3 combination. Starters: Susardi - Hagman, Sykes, Javanainen - Brandão, Fröhbrodt, Ash, Lindholm - Tambornino, Furkan, Kublar-Glueck.

Indios had chosen a strategic 3-5-2 formation. Lineup: Rahman - Simonsen, Lauerer, Hansen - Kazandzhiev, Lameirinhas, Ribeiro, de Deus, Ficotoro - Persson, Guerrico.

Samurais could have put themselves ahead after 5 minutes but F. Tambornino missed a volley shot on a ball coming in from the right. E. Fröhbrodt neatly controlled the ball after a short corner, and knocked it on to L. Kublar-Glueck who had the whole net open before him, but only managed to hit the post. After 19 minutes, F. Tambornino sprinted between the opposing defenders and squared the ball, but the keeper deflected L. Kublar-Glueck's shot. Samurais took the lead after 26 minutes as a result of L. Kublar-Glueck's peach of a shot from the right hand side of the box - placed beautifully in the top corner. 1 - 0. L. Lindholm almost put Samurais ahead another goal when he curled a free kick over the defensive wall and almost into the net, but the visitors' keeper got there just in time to knock it wide. A well placed corner kick from L. Lindholm was followed by O. Brandão's hard but accurate header. The well executed routine resulted in a goal for Samurais, the score now 2 - 0. Samurais increased the lead as K. Furkan struck to make the score 3 - 0 after an attack from the left left him unmarked in front of the keeper. L. Kublar-Glueck could have increased the lead after 37 minutes, but his shot hit the post after a nice combination in the middle of the park. The teams went for the halftime break at 3 - 0. Possession in the forty-five minutes was dominated by Samurais, with 53 percent of the ball.

A bit later, Indios's R. Lauerer easily reduced the lead to 3 - 1 after a misunderstanding in the home side's central defence. After 57 minutes, the away team failed to deal with a good exchange of passes on the right, and L. Lindholm gave the Samurais supporters even more to cheer about when he increased the lead to 4 - 1. L. Tavares was called on to replace Samurais's L. Kublar-Glueck after 59 minutes following a nasty collision. The home team's fans were upset when, after 67 minutes, the visiting G. Ficotoro broke through the central defence and kicked the ball past the keeper. 4 - 2 was the score. M. Guerrico could've grabbed a goal for Indios 71 minutes in when he got a pass from the left putting him free of the home side's defence, but he was unable to take advantage of the situation. F. Tambornino stunned the crowd with a brilliant counterattack from the left, giving Samurais the goal to make it 5 - 2. By now, the players in Samurais felt that victory was guaranteed and began to play it safe, focusing on defence and not risking too much going forward. Samurais enjoyed most of the ball, as they maintained 51 percent of possession.

Samurais's best player was J. Ash. B. Susardi turned in a dismal performance, however. The most dominating Indios player was without a doubt G. Lameirinhas. On the other hand, A. Rahman's play was disheartening. The match ends 5 - 2.
