Santos 1 - 0 A.F.C

The weather was pretty good, and a crowd of 68034 had shown up at Monumental Santos for the match. Johnny Wekter was the appointed referee. Santos tactics involved an interesting 3-5-2 combination. They fielded: Björkstedt - Lander, Bravo, Mancera - Iranzo, Tovar, Davidson, Riutta, Straßenfeld - Stănescu, Goasguen.

A.F.C started off with a 4-5-1 lineup. Starters: Csekei - Kurttila, Amatriain, Kallitzakis, Vianes - Novais, Ibarra, Acevedo, Chairi, Kapataidakis - Vanoni.

Santos took the lead 19 minutes into the game by 1 - 0, as S. Stănescu elegantly received a long range pass through the middle, finishing off with a half-volley shot just below the bar. 1 - 0 was the halftime score. Possession in this half belonged to Santos, who controlled the ball 51 percent of the time.

After 69 minutes, A.F.C's I. Kallitzakis fell awkwardly, but was determined to stay in the match. That's the spirit! After a short break after 70 minutes, Santos seemed to change their tactical approach a bit. D. Tovar could have increased the lead after 74 minutes, but his shot hit the post after a nice combination in the middle of the park. A.F.C's J. Acevedo refused to leave the field after injuring his achilles tendon after 81 minutes. Santos's D. Tovar had an excellent opportunity after 85 minutes, shooting after receiving a pass from the right hand side, but he missed the goal by miles! Neither team were able to dominate possession this half.

Santos's best player was A. Goasguen. However, O. Straßenfeld made a disastrous appearance. J. Chairi performed admirably for A.F.C. M. Novais was a disappointment, however. The match ends 1 - 0.
