Tinca were mostly trying to use their skill at attacking on the flanks.
Tinca were very close to putting themselves one up after 6 minutes as J. Penke
got through on the left, but failing in concentration, he shot the ball wide.
After several obvious shirt pulling incidents, M. Hohenthal
got himself booked. The manager of Tinca was not happy.
After some beautiful movement down the left wing, 罗. 其骠 (Qibiao)
scored for Tinca putting them ahead 1 - 0, after 14 minutes.

After 22 minutes, L. Korepta
put Tinca ahead 2 - 0 when he rose to head in a cross from the right wing.
With 23 minutes played, seemingly due to lack of experience, P. Behrendt
needlessly tripped an opponent just outside the penalty area, but the free kick that followed didn't succeed.
A speedy charge from the left side of the field increased the lead of Tinca to 3 - 0 as F. Hasseröder
finished it off competently, firing in from an acute angle.
3 - 0 was the score after the first half.
Tinca enjoyed most of the ball, as they maintained 54 percent of possession.
After 58 minutes, the away team failed to deal with a good exchange of passes on the right, and L. Korepta
gave the Tinca supporters even more to cheer about when he increased the lead to 4 - 0.
The players of Tinca now seemed to think the job was done and acted more defensively, just waiting for the ref to blow the final whistle.
After 60 minutes, a couple of quick and successful challenges followed by a shot from just outside the penalty area by R. Völkl
might have resulted in another goal for Tinca. However, G. Schöne
made a spectacular save.
The home crowd was silenced as U. Lüssem
took a successful penalty shot 67 minutes into the game, reducing the home lead to 4 - 1.

Possession in the forty-five minutes was dominated by Tinca, with 55 percent of the ball.
The most dominating Tinca player was without a doubt F. Hasseröder
