fc_bosnia started off with a 3-4-3 lineup.
The following players took the field: Bronsart - Storchi, Antonarelli, Ciofani - Centioni, Pileček, Donkov, Cristina - Moscoso, Frasson, Noens.
DellAmico decided to play creatively.
fc_bosnia saw most attack opportunities on the wings.
It was obvious that fc_bosnia had instructions to attack on the wings instead of in the middle.

placed the ball out of reach for the home side's keeper after a fine move, coming in from the left.

had an excellent opportunity to add to the visitors' lead, clipping a volley hooked in from the right, but A. Öksüz
was in the right place and tipped the ball over for a corner.
After a fatal mistake from the away team's right side defence 16 minutes into the match, an alert A. Indacoechea
bagged the ball for DellAmico, levelling the score to 1 - 1.

Coming through the middle D. Pileček
almost scored the equaliser for fc_bosnia after 30 minutes, but A. Öksüz
made an excellent save, tipping the awkwardly curled shot past the post.

was followed by D. Centioni
's hard but accurate header. The well executed routine resulted in a goal for fc_bosnia, the score now 2 - 2.
After 36 minutes, a long pass from fc_bosnia's C. Antonarelli
caught the defence out of position. G. Noens
collected the ball, and with the goal at his mercy calmly rolled the ball just inside the post. 2 - 3.

came in from the right after 38 minutes and put the ball in the net to level the score at 3 - 3.

after 70 minutes, and prevented fc_bosnia from going up another goal.

was marked down as the scorer.
