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 selected: 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 waste it. 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, Weingarten's W. Roszczyk got himself booked. Given a free kick from an impossible angle, Vesinokkaeläimet went for a play that loyal fans may recognize from training. A square ball surprised the defense and let N. Waris slip through at goal. He hit it first time, making the score 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 of Vesinokkaeläimet felt that victory was a sure thing and began to play it safe, focusing on defense and not risking too much going forward. The home fans looked somber as they watched their team give up another goal, this one coming from their right as O. Paasilehto put one through the keeper's legs. 0 - 4 after 41 minutes. 0 - 4 was the halftime score. Possession of the ball was split evenly 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 but the angle was too sharp, and the shot was destined for the side netting. Vesinokkaeläimet's A. Dumitrescu sent an early cross that saw the defenders caught out of position and the alert S. Möhl was able to pounce and roll the ball past the hapless netminder to make the score 0 - 5. The Vesinokkaeläimet free kick 79 minutes into the match seemed wasted, as the shot was both short and off target. But it was no mistake - P. Äyräs seemingly came out of nowhere and had miles of space to control the ball and pick his spot. That's 0 - 6! A. Dumitrescu increased the visitors' lead by volleying in a pass from the right. 0 - 7. Weingarten won the midfield battle for the half, with 51 percent possession 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.
