The 2936 spectators at Grichzly Cave were in for an afternoon of sunshine. Ivica Smolić was the appointed referee. A 2-5-3 alignment was the formation of choice for Grichzly. They fielded: Sezzi - Virtanen, Agerskov - Erlin, Giessen, Hemmes, Reszka, Retka - Bel, Sârca, Taioli.

Galiano started off with a 3-5-2 lineup. Lineup: Trachanas - Olivia, Hollingsworth, Ben-Yossef - Valdimarsson, Ellertsson, Bobrovský, Silverell, Karakurt - Cellar, Brüggen.

Galiano tried to focus their attacks down the middle. Galiano had several good opportunities to take the lead, especially 3 minutes in when G. Cellar came up alone against E. Sezzi who managed a block. A mistake by the home side's central defence after 4 minutes allowed B. Valdimarsson to score for Galiano. The scoreboard now read 0 - 1. After several obvious shirt pulling incidents, H. Brüggen got himself booked. The manager of Galiano was not happy. Galiano's G. Cellar was shown a yellow card for standing over the ball and blocking an opponent's quick free kick after 6 minutes. It was obvious that team Galiano had instructions to attack in the middle instead of on the wings. After 9 minutes, an incisive pass through the middle gave H. Brüggen a chance to increase the lead for Galiano, and he did not disappoint. The score was then 0 - 2. By now, the players in Galiano felt that victory was guaranteed and began to play it safe, focusing on defence and not risking too much going forward. K. Silverell received a delicate pass through the home side's central defence after 19 minutes, and chipped it past the flailing keeper to score making it 0 - 3. The Galiano fans went wild, whilst the home fans started to think about leaving early. The Galiano free kick 31 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 A. Olivia, who was completely unmarked in the box. That's 0 - 4! It was 0 - 4 at the break. Galiano claimed to have seen most of the ball, and the statistics agreed with them - possession being 70 percent.

After 52 minutes, Galiano's B. Valdimarsson burst through the central defence and let loose a cannonball of a shot, scoring for 0 - 5. B. Retka of Grichzly was booked for kicking the ball away after the whistle. With 59 minutes played, a quick exchange of passes on the left wing freed G. Cellar of Galiano to slip through the defence and score another goal for the visitors. That made the score 0 - 6. After 69 minutes, a mistake by the home side's left defence allowed M. Hollingsworth to get through. He outclassed the home side's keeper, adding another goal for the visitors. 0 - 7. Some things can only be learned through experience, and M. Hollingsworth should take his lesson to heart after nearly gifting Grichzly a goal with 70 minutes of the match played. A drive down the left side allowed B. Valdimarsson to get in close and score another goal for Galiano after 72 minutes, taking the score to 0 - 8. That made three goals for B. Valdimarsson and he was marked down for the hat trick. Galiano players heard their coach's words ringing in their ears and steered their wing attacks to the middle instead. After 75 minutes a combination in the middle resulted in a through ball for D. Bobrovský who increased Galiano's lead to 0 - 9. Possession in this half belonged to Galiano, who controlled the ball 74 percent of the time.

Grichzly's top performer was clearly R. Taioli. However, E. Sezzi made a disastrous appearance. Galiano's best player was D. Bobrovský. On the other hand, A. Ellertsson's play was disheartening. The match ends 0 - 9.
