Overcast weather free of rain made for a crowd turnout of 29776 at AFC Amsterdam today. Max Schönholzer was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Meinrad Hubli and Mattia Chessa. Amsterdam decided to use a 4-5-1 set up. The following players took the field: Borhidan - Mogensen, Heespen, Bitsch, Klijn - Štědrý, Prochota, Hoeltzenbein, Kadijk, Shkedi - van Essen.

A 5-4-1 alignment was the formation of choice for Bubbie. The following players had been chosen: Beers - Prieto, Peyret, Bonassoli, Bronk, Osorio - Slendebroek, Rustenburg, de Kler, Pijnenburg - Eggenkamp.

Counter-attacking seemed to be the preferred strategy of Amsterdam. Using their counter-attacking abilities was the strategy of choice for Bubbie. After 3 minutes, Amsterdam were awarded a free kick. Rather than shooting straight at goal, the taker went for an indirect variant which seemed to take his team mates a bit by surprise. T. Bitsch did attempt a finish, but from an awkward position, sending the ball into the away fans. S. Bonassoli had a good opportunity to give Bubbie 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. 23 minutes into the game, R. Eggenkamp had a great chance to put his team ahead, but his kick from the left went wide. After 24 minutes D. Štědrý made a speedy advance and dropped the ball to K. van Essen who shuffled it past the keeper. The score was now 1 - 0. Coming through the middle C. Prieto almost scored the equaliser for Bubbie after 26 minutes, but B. Borhidan made an excellent save, tipping the awkward curled shot past the post. Halftime score was 1 - 0. Possession in this half belonged to Bubbie, who controlled the ball 58 percent of the time.

After 46 minutes, Bubbie switched R. Eggenkamp with M. Carabajal, hoping for a quick impact on the pitch. Amsterdam's defence sent a ball soaring up the middle on a beautiful counterattack with 48 minutes gone, but K. van Essen's finish was met by the reaching hands of the keeper. G. Osorio of Bubbie was booked for kicking the ball away after the whistle. K. van Essen of Amsterdam received a yellow card after 73 minutes for unsportsmanlike behaviour. With the clock showing 80 minutes played, a great pass from the defensive line of Amsterdam resulted in a counterattack that was smoothly brought under control by K. van Essen in the centre of the opposition's penalty area, but his finish went high. Bubbie claimed to have seen most of the ball, and the statistics agreed with them - possession being 60 percent.

Most important Amsterdam player was T. Hoeltzenbein. However, J. Mogensen made a disastrous appearance. The most dominating Bubbie player was without a doubt P. Rustenburg. N. Bronk on the other hand, had a terrible day. The match ends 1 - 0.
