Dark skies made the crowd of 2582 at Sparta Kolosseum a little nervous, but the rain held off. Vincent Boulenger was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Laimnesis Birzītis and Luca Sindelfingen. A 2-5-3 alignment was the formation of choice for Weingarten. Lineup: Kudryakov - Sprenkelers, Ūlands - Alves Pinheiro, Simonelli, Kristiansen, Strasen, Holaň - Roszczyk, Rust, Rodrigues Fernandes.

Vesinokkaeläimet had chosen a strategic 4-4-2 formation. The following players had been chosen: Siintola - Sandberg, Mäkikallio, Nortunen, Äyräs - Lubbe, Korte, Waris, Dumitrescu - Paasilehto, Möhl.

Today, Weingarten's strategy involved concentrating on the flanks for their attacks. Vesinokkaeläimet were mostly trying to use their skill at attacking on the flanks. Some good play on the left wing created an opportunity for the visitors 10 minutes into the match, and J. Korte wasn't about to let it go by. He got past the defenders and fired a shot that the keeper just missed. 0 - 1 for the visitors. Weingarten had to make a substitution after 30 minutes. J. Alves Pinheiro limped off the field and was replaced by A. Losada Ozores. It was obvious that Weingarten had instructions to attack on the wings instead of in the middle. After several obvious shirt pulling incidents, W. Roszczyk got himself booked. The manager of Weingarten was not happy. Given a free kick close to the byline, Vesinokkaeläimet tried a move that loyal fans may recognise from training. A pass to the side pulled the defence out of position which let N. Waris slip through on goal. He didn't have to break his stride, and slipped the ball past the keeper to make it 0 - 2, 38 minutes into the game. Players in Vesinokkaeläimet heard their coach's words ringing in their ears and steered their central attacks to the wings instead. With 39 minutes played, Vesinokkaeläimet put themselves up 0 - 3 after an attack from the right, caused by a defensive blunder. The scorer was A. Dumitrescu. By now, the players in Vesinokkaeläimet felt that victory was guaranteed and began to play it safe, focusing on defence and not risking too much going forward. A drive down the left side allowed O. Paasilehto to get in close and score another goal for Vesinokkaeläimet after 41 minutes, taking the score to 0 - 4. 0 - 4 was the halftime score. Possession of the ball saw an equal split between the teams during the forty-five minutes.

Vesinokkaeläimet came close to extending their lead as J. Korte delivered a low effort on goal from the right after 56 minutes, but the angle was too narrow and the shot went harmlessly into the side netting. A. Dumitrescu's early cross saw the defenders caught out of position and the alert S. Möhl was able to pounce and roll the ball past the hapless goalkeeper to score for Vesinokkaeläimet. 0 - 5. The Vesinokkaeläimet free kick 79 minutes into the match seemed wasted, as the shot was both short and off target. But was this actually a plan? The ball landed at the feet of P. Äyräs, who was completely unmarked in the box. That's 0 - 6! A. Dumitrescu increased the visitors' lead by putting a volley away after a pass from the right. 0 - 7. Possession in the forty-five minutes was dominated by Weingarten, with 51 percent of the ball.

Most important Weingarten player was H. Rust. H. Rodrigues Fernandes on the other hand, had a terrible day. The most dominating Vesinokkaeläimet player was without a doubt Y. Lubbe. J. Korte turned in a dismal performance, however. The match ends 0 - 7.
