A scorching day at San Gennaro, where 1220 spectators were in place for today's match. Alfredo Algora was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Jorge Barbosa and Krzysztof Walecki. Mazzarri tactics involved an interesting 4-4-2 combination. The following players had been chosen: Buşe - Slezák, Zoli, Castelló, Warecki - Zeegelaar, Brđović, Ferreira, Dirlmeier - Pescarmona, Popa.

A 3-4-3 alignment was the formation of choice for Monkeys. Starters: Donthi - Donthineni, Tucci, Kardar - Chovan, Bajwa, Basu, Ingalhalikar - Cusanno, Copin, Winter.

Mazzarri immediately set off using their skill at pressing their opponents. Monkeys seemed to prefer attacking in the middle. The crowd gasped as A. Bajwa of Monkeys was flattened by an opponent after 22 minutes and had to be carried off. D. Bhide came in off the bench. The home side put themselves ahead 1 - 0 after 25 minutes courtesy of a breakthrough from K. Slezák, who scored with a stunning volley following a cross from the right wing. 29 minutes into the game, Monkeys seemed a little tentative in their play as their organization fell to inadequate. There was concern in the stands when, at the 37 minute mark, Monkeys's W. Winter hit the ground hard, but he refused the attention of the trainer and rejoined his teammates on the pitch. With 44 minutes played, Mazzarri's I. Zeegelaar almost extended the lead, but his shot from the left glanced off the top of the bar to fall behind the net. Mazzarri's W. Warecki got himself booked for a foul. The teams went for the halftime break at 1 - 0. Mazzarri enjoyed most of the ball, as they maintained 54 percent of possession.

The Monkeys players spent the break getting a rerun of the team's tactical organisation and regained a solid organisation when the game started again. Cheers filled the stadium as I. Zoli broke through the visitors' central defence to put away the ball to increase the lead to 2 - 0 to Mazzarri. 57 minutes into the game, Monkeys seemed to suffer a certain amount of confusion and they fell to a passable level of organisation. The intense heat forced R. Chovan into making some errors because he couldn't seem to keep up with the others. 72 minutes into the game, Monkeys had difficulty finding their positions and their organisation dropped to inadequate. R. Chovan showed his inexperience when he failed to anticipate the bounce of a high ball, allowing Mazzarri's M. Brđović to take advantage and place a shot into the bottom corner of the goal. 3 - 0. 74 minutes into the match, the visitors' central line of defence had to look on as U. Dirlmeier broke through, making the score 4 - 0 for Mazzarri. At this point, it was obvious that the players of Mazzarri lowered the tempo and became more defensively oriented. Monkeys's P. Ingalhalikar was able to reply, after 75 minutes, making the score 4 - 1 with a well struck penalty. Monkeys's D. Cusanno refused to leave the field after injuring his achilles tendon after 80 minutes. Mazzarri pressed their opponents, causing the game to be a bit of a stalemate at times. Mazzarri solidified their lead at the 84 minute mark, as D. Popa dribbled the ball through the opposing central defence and scored to make it 5 - 1. 86 minutes into the match I. Castelló put Mazzarri ahead 6 - 1 with a truly marvelous free kick. Possession in this half belonged to Mazzarri, who controlled the ball 53 percent of the time.

Mazzarri's top performer was clearly D. Popa. U. Dirlmeier turned in a dismal performance, however. The most dominating Monkeys player was without a doubt A. Copin. On the other hand, D. Bhide's play was disheartening. The match ends 6 - 1.
