42044 punters turned up at Cánh Đồng Xanh
, and despite threatening clouds on the horizon, no rain came. Ricardo Landaeta
was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Till-Werner Gurmann

Bac started off with a 3-4-3 lineup.
Lineup: Capirossi - 茨栋 (Cidong) , Thanh Tâm, Trường - Tarabillo, 淮帆 (Huaifan), Văn Tấn, Anh Phương - Di Biase, Riis Jeppesen, Nhịn.
Haiduong tactics involved an interesting 4-4-2 combination.
The following players took the field: Triều Đán - Văn Đấu, Nhất Uy, Phúc Phiên, Trung Hoa - Hiến An, Anh Long, Hồng Nhậm, Thượng Vĩ - Đính, Phú Hiệp.
D. Nhất Uy
seemed highly inexperienced when, after 10 minutes, he was caught dilly-dallying with the ball and allowed R. Riis Jeppesen
to intercept and strike home the goal for Bac to make the score 1 - 0.
A speedy charge from the left side of the field increased the lead of Bac to 2 - 0 as R. Riis Jeppesen
finished it off competently, firing in from an acute angle.
Bac solidified their lead at the 14 minute mark, as C. Di Biase
dribbled the ball through the opposing central defence and scored to make it 3 - 0.
By now, the players in Bac felt that victory was guaranteed and began to play it safe, focusing on defence and not risking too much going forward.
Bac managed to extend their lead to 4 - 0 when C. Di Biase
cut in neatly from the left side and struck a fine shot past the away team's goalkeeper.
The opposing supporters gave the referee an earful when he only gave J. Tarabillo
from Bac a yellow card after a mistimed challenge from behind 23 minutes into the game. That was far too lenient!
Bac put themselves up 5 - 0 when R. Riis Jeppesen
broke through on the right, leaving the entire defence trailing in his wake.
By then R. Riis Jeppesen
had scored three goals - a hat trick!
Cheers filled the stadium as K. Văn Tấn
broke through the visitors' central defence to put away the ball to increase the lead to 6 - 0 to Bac.
Halftime score was 6 - 0.
Possession in this half belonged to Bac, who controlled the ball 86 percent of the time.
After 53 minutes, the away team failed to deal with a good exchange of passes on the right, and R. Riis Jeppesen
gave the Bac supporters even more to cheer about when he increased the lead to 7 - 0.
Bac's 蓝. 茨栋 (Cidong)
put in a disappointing effort on a penalty after 56 minutes, firing just wide of the goal.
A magnificent combination in the middle resulted in Bac's 蓝. 茨栋 (Cidong)
increasing the lead to 8 - 0.
73 minutes into the match, the visitors' central line of defence had to look on as P. Trường
broke through, making the score 9 - 0 for Bac.
Bac had most of the ball, with 90 percent of possession.
The most dominating Bac player was without a doubt 刘. 淮帆 (Huaifan)
However, P. Thanh Tâm
made a disastrous appearance.
Haiduong's best player was P. Hồng Nhậm
Đ. Triều Đán
turned in a dismal performance, however.
The match ends 9 - 0.
