El Mariachi FC fielded a 3-5-2 lineup. For Die Rumpelkicker, the formation of choice was 4-4-2. For their match strategy, Rumpelkicker had decided to use their magnificent ability to counter-attack whenever possible. The referee showed Mariachi's Jean-Bernard Beaumont the yellow card after a particularly nasty challenge. Mariachi had a chance to take the lead after Sergio Rigo's dazzling drive up the left, but the opportunity fizzled out as his shot went just over the bar after 26 minutes. Mariachi's opponents know to be wary of Mathieu Robart's speed, but it made little difference as he flew past the defence 38 minutes into the game. Only the keeper could stop him - and he did with a perfectly timed dive! 39 minutes into the game, Tomé Almuíña was a hair's breadth away from giving Rumpelkicker the lead with a shot from over on the left. A prompt block by Patrice Cuénin saved the home team that time. The opposing supporters gave the referee an earful when he only gave Timo Rheinegger from Mariachi a yellow card after a mistimed challenge from behind 41 minutes into the game. That was far too lenient! A counterattack by Rumpelkicker after 44 minutes could have resulted in a goal, but Tomé Almuíña, coming in on the left, couldn't get the shot off. The teams went for the halftime break at 0 - 0. Mariachi claimed to have seen most of the ball, and the statistics agreed with them - possession being 60 percent.

At 50 minutes played, Oladipupo Chukwu came in from the right with the intention of giving Mariachi the lead, but his rocket of a shot rattled the crossbar. With 62 minutes played Sergio Rigo almost put the home team one ahead on a cross coming in from the right, but the shot went just wide. Always quick and a menace to his opponents, Mathieu Robart was very close to getting through after 76 minutes, but he could only put the ball into the keeper's arms. Mariachi's Sergio Rigo got himself booked for a foul. After 82 minutes, Rumpelkicker's lack of experience resulted in the team's loss of their edge at the end of the game. Mariachi's Mathieu Robart made use of his speed to get free of the defence, but he still couldn't get a shot off 83 minutes into the match. Rumpelkicker took the lead 84 minutes into the game, making the score 0 - 1 after some elegant movement down the middle. Zohodia Mustafa was the scorer. With the clock showing 88 minutes played, a great pass from the defensive line of Rumpelkicker resulted in a counterattack that was smoothly brought under control by Roman Terrasson in the centre of the opposition's penalty area, but his finish went high. It was announced by the referee that he estimated stoppage time to be around 1 minute. This meant there could still be an extra attack or two left in the match! The match ends 0 - 1. Possession in the forty-five minutes was dominated by Mariachi, with 58 percent of the ball.

Mariachi's top performer was clearly Gian Kummer. However, Franz Mattle made a disastrous appearance. Hakan Duperret performed admirably for Rumpelkicker. Jakub Drzazgowski was a disappointment, however.
