36862 spectators had come to Theatre of Dreams this cloudy day. Sjakie van Gool was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Isaac Paris and Aivo Kasemägi. Pimbolins had chosen a strategic 5-4-1 formation. Starters: Ortet - Nicoletti, Veiga, Drago, Farinha, Natal - Bezuyen, Dumitrache, Quintana, Ölgür - Brahe.

A 3-4-3 alignment was the formation of choice for ritaline. Lineup: Scaramozzino - Neplech, Huijbers, Vallantyne - Miez, Trillo, Schejbal, Bulder - Werpachowski, Shrubb, Hudák.

It was obvious that Pimbolins were using their pressing skill as their primary tactic. The wings were the focus of most of ritaline's attacks today. It might be a while before the fans see Pimbolins's V. Ortet again, after he had to leave the field in great distress at the 23 minute mark. He was replaced by E. Folgado. D. Veiga became the new Pimbolins captain. The head of D. Werpachowski connected with a corner kick after 31 minutes, and the ball ended up with A. Huijbers of ritaline who blasted the ball into the net, making the score 0 - 1. After 38 minutes, following yet another great corner, H. Ölgür's flick on at the near post reached H. Brahe, who was just wide with his snapshot - the ball went out for a goal kick. Pimbolins's ability to press all over the field frequently paid dividends. 0 - 1 was the halftime score. Possession in the forty-five minutes was dominated by Pimbolins, with 54 percent of the ball.

51 minutes into the match, the visitors put themselves ahead 0 - 2 as R. Schejbal finished off an attack from the left with a spectacular scissors kick. The bench was restless, and with 65 minutes passed Pimbolins's coach gave 郭. 恒坤 (Hengkun) the opportunity the player had been hoping for. D. Farinha reluctantly left the field. Pimbolins's talent at pressing frustrated the spectators as the game became a dire midfield struggle. Pimbolins pressed their opponents, causing the game to be a bit of a stalemate at times. The pressing tactics used by Pimbolins were successful as the ball remained close to the half way line at all times. E. Nicoletti missed an opportunity to score from the penalty spot 82 minutes into the match, dashing the hopes of the home side. Pimbolins had most of the ball, with 52 percent of possession.

The most dominating Pimbolins player was without a doubt D. Veiga. E. Folgado was a disappointment, however. ritaline's best player was D. Shrubb. However, C. Vallantyne made a disastrous appearance. The match ends 0 - 2.
