65000 punters turned up at Grüne Au, and despite threatening clouds on the horizon, no rain came. Stig Damkjær was the appointed referee. Vorwärts had chosen a strategic 3-5-2 formation. They fielded: Igellund - Ramos García, Karsakov, Valério - Grosnille, Hoeland, Greinstetter, Witzmann, Meusburger - Catană, Kasper.

A 4-5-1 alignment was the formation of choice for Stanghausen. Lineup: Soler - Caffi, Bumblauskis, Maggiore, Quirini - Wolff, Borella, Kupetskiy, Foetsch, Di Nicola - Mic.

Counter-attacking seemed to be the preferred strategy of Stanghausen. M. Witzmann sailed high above the opponents as he headed in a corner kick from M. Catană after 14 minutes of play, making the score 1 - 0. The home side's M. Catană came close to extending the lead 27 minutes into the game. His shot came in from the right hand side but I. Soler managed to save it with an unbelievable reaction stop. Coming in from the right, Stanghausen had a good opportunity to convert on a counterattack after 28 minutes, but E. Quirini's attempt to finish was easily stopped. The home crowd was dismayed when the referee called a penalty for Stanghausen after 40 minutes. P. Kupetskiy calmly took the shot and scored. The game was level at 1 - 1. Stanghausen almost scored after a swift counterattack 43 minutes into the game, but B. Bumblauskis put the shot from the left flank just outside the goal. After 43 minutes, Vorwärts's F. Meusburger fell awkwardly, but was determined to stay in the match. That's the spirit! It wasn't a pretty goal, but the free kick by M. Catană after 44 minutes somehow found its way past the keeper. Vorwärts takes the lead, 2 - 1! M. Catană could have put Vorwärts up one more, but he fired into the side netting after breaking free on the left after 44 minutes. Halftime score was 2 - 1. Vorwärts claimed to have seen most of the ball, and the statistics agreed with them - possession being 66 percent.

F. Meusburger's speed was clear to see after 47 minutes, as he darted down the wing and released M. Catană who placed the ball into the back of the net to make the score 3 - 1. After 51 minutes P. Wolff seized on an opportunistic attack from the right, and scored for Stanghausen making it 3 - 2. Vorwärts put in a good effort on the right, but M. Catană saw his volley fly wide of the mark 61 minutes into the game. Coming from the right, M. Catană almost managed to score another goal for Vorwärts, but his header was tipped over the bar by the visitors' keeper. The referee showed Stanghausen's M. Caffi the yellow card after a particularly nasty challenge. P. Kupetskiy came close to levelling the score 77 minutes into the game, as he was set up with a through ball coming in from the left, but his shot hit the post. Vorwärts's F. Meusburger had an excellent opportunity after 78 minutes, shooting after receiving a pass from the right hand side, but he missed the goal by miles! Stanghausen needed a fresh pair of legs on the field, and after 80 minutes G. Di Nicola made way for D. Noe. The bench was restless, and with 81 minutes passed Stanghausen's coach gave S. Boivin the opportunity the player had been hoping for. M. Caffi reluctantly left the field. There was concern in the stands when, at the 82 minute mark, Vorwärts's S. Kasper hit the ground hard, but he refused the attention of the trainer and rejoined his teammates on the pitch. Possession in this half belonged to Vorwärts, who controlled the ball 65 percent of the time.

Vorwärts's top performer was clearly J. Greinstetter. L. Ramos García on the other hand, had a terrible day. Most important Stanghausen player was I. Soler. However, D. Noe made a disastrous appearance. The match ends 3 - 2.
