Dark skies made the crowd of 36781 at Teamzone Arena a little nervous, but the rain held off. Matias Jumppanen was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Chaime de Blas and Berend Kok. Teamzone tactics involved an interesting 3-5-2 combination. Starters: Berdejo - Ebels, Korkeamäki, Ritto - Melone, Komínek, Obłąkowski, Pratscher, Dvorževskis - Mamin, Corvaja.

Blackbirdz started off with a 4-5-1 lineup. They fielded: Melo - Peca, Moldavskiy, Järvelä, Wallenstein - Villa, Hansen, Aragó, Formby, Rošić - Baccarani.

Counter-attacking seemed to be the preferred strategy of Blackbirdz. Blackbirdz almost scored after a swift counterattack 6 minutes into the game, but N. Villa put the shot from the left flank just outside the goal. J. Formby had a good opportunity to give Blackbirdz the lead as he charged down the right and struck the ball towards the top corner, but the home team's goalkeeper made the save. After 9 minutes, Teamzone's A. Mamin swiftly ran past M. Järvelä and nutmegged the keeper! 1 - 0. The home team will be cursing N. Villa for weeks; he finished off a great pass from the left, knocking it past the keeper without a problem. The match was level at 1 - 1 after 20 minutes. Teamzone created a good opportunity to score 22 minutes into the match when G. Melone's hooked ball from the left created a scuffle in front of the goal, and the visitors' defenders had a hard time clearing the ball. The guests almost went up by a goal after 24 minutes when S. Aragó came through and shot from the right. The ball bounced harmlessly off the post, though. After several obvious shirt pulling incidents, G. Melone got himself booked. The manager of Teamzone was not happy. 35 minutes into the match, the visiting Blackbirdz made the score 1 - 2 after J. Formby executed a perfect free kick. 1 - 2 was the halftime score. Teamzone enjoyed most of the ball, as they maintained 55 percent of possession.

Teamzone's P. Obłąkowski almost tied things up with 63 minutes played after breaking through on the right, but his shot deflected off the post. Although the whole team were struggling to impress, Teamzone's D. Corvaja was singled out as being the problem as he was called off the pitch after 72 minutes. A. Phillips was given a chance to change things around. Teamzone's G. Melone put his head to a high ball coming in from the right after 72 minutes, but the ball went wide. Blackbirdz almost scored after a counterattack 73 minutes into the match, but G. Hansen took a shot from the left that landed harmlessly in the side of the net. After 74 minutes of game time, N. Villa had an excellent opportunity to add to the visitors' lead, clipping a volley hooked in from the right, but A. Berdejo was in the right place and tipped the ball over for a corner. With 75 minutes gone, K. Ebels suddenly found himself completely free on the right wing when a counterattack by Teamzone caught their opponents by surprise. Only a great save by the opposing keeper prevented him from scoring. Possession in this half belonged to Teamzone, who controlled the ball 55 percent of the time.

The most dominating Teamzone player was without a doubt A. Phillips. P. Obłąkowski turned in a dismal performance, however. Most important Blackbirdz player was M. Baccarani. M. Järvelä on the other hand, had a terrible day. The match ends 1 - 2.
