Due to an all-day shower, 1975 paying spectators got to see a match on a pitch-turned-bog at böisi-arena. Paolo Simonetti was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Vilmos Gehér and Herman Moll. A 3-4-3 alignment was the formation of choice for UNITED. The following players took the field: Morigi - Devorst, Leonard, Glastra - Vikman, Zinck, Neubauer, Pintz - Johner, Combier, Mattle.

Sportman started off with a 5-3-1 lineup. Starters: Rodriguez - Torre, Vignetta, Viola, Surian, Huerta - Fontana, Canfora, Avalos - Ramos.

Sportman had no available replacements when C. Vignetta had to leave the game after 18 minutes because of a pulled tendon, leaving the team a man short. The home side put themselves ahead 1 - 0 after 30 minutes courtesy of a breakthrough from O. Mattle, who scored with a stunning volley following a cross from the right wing. J. Pintz of UNITED was booked for kicking the ball away after the whistle. A corner kick created great disorder in the penalty area with a goal nearly scored by J. Pintz. At last, UNITED's G. Leonard was able to backheel the ball in. 2 - 0. Confident in their lead, UNITED's players relaxed and focused more on defending the lead than increasing it. F. Avalos's speed was almost enough to give Sportman a goal after 34 minutes, but his nice pass to N. Ramos was not taken care of properly. When P. Surian was badly injured by a couple of strong tackles after 39 minutes, Sportman fans were unhappy to discover that it was not possible to make a substitution. 42 minutes in, Sportman appeared unsure on how to play and their organisation was only inadequate. After 43 minutes, S. Canfora came close to reducing the score with a free kick aimed near the left post, but C. Morigi warded the ball off to a corner. After 44 minutes, Sportman were awarded a free kick. Rather than shooting straight at goal, the taker went for an indirect variant which seemed to take his team mates a bit by surprise. G. Torre did attempt a finish, but from an awkward position, sending the ball into the away fans. UNITED's counterattacks were lethal to the opposing defence, allowing B. Johner to score easily from the right flank for 3 - 0. Things were deteriorating for the away team as UNITED scored another to make it 4 - 0 after a left side attack resulted in a goal for J. Zinck after 44 minutes. 44 minutes into the match UNITED's G. Leonard head butted an opponent nastily, and so the referee sent him off immediately. Sportman's L. Fontana had to leave the pitch and there were no more available substitutions! Halftime score was 4 - 0. UNITED had most of the ball, with 66 percent of possession.

The coach gave his players an extra tactical briefing during the break, and after that Sportman had solid organisation. The cannonball from 35 metres by O. Mattle of UNITED was an impressive sight, but didn't make it into the net. The referee showed UNITED's O. Mattle the yellow card after a particularly nasty challenge. Sportman fans were dismayed when it was apparent no substitutes remained after P. Rodriguez's injury. With the goal left unguarded, F. Avalos had to leave his normal position and pick up the gloves. A speedy charge from the left side of the field increased the lead of UNITED to 5 - 0 as F. Combier finished it off competently, firing in from an acute angle. UNITED managed to extend their lead to 6 - 0 when O. Mattle cut in neatly from the left side and struck a fine shot past the away team's goalkeeper. B. Devorst should probably have put his team up another goal after 71 minutes after breaking through the middle, but some great goalkeeping by F. Avalos kept the visitors in the game. Possession in the forty-five minutes was dominated by UNITED, with 67 percent of the ball.

Most important UNITED player was B. Devorst. B. Johner was a disappointment, however. The most dominating Sportman player was without a doubt S. Canfora. However, F. Avalos made a disastrous appearance. The match ends 6 - 0.
