23666 spectators had come to Ralph Cooper Stadium this cloudy day. was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Roberto Salcedo and Gian Franco Busetto. Giuventus had chosen a strategic 3-5-2 formation. The following players took the field: Bielsa - Gatell, Grauer, Madsen - Wild, Goralski, Vikatmaa, Virkkala, Perelló - Malbaša, Kholodilin.

Metsis tactics involved an interesting 4-5-1 combination. They fielded: Oese - Väätäinen, Kautto, Mather, Lavonen - Arvelin, Upla, Olkkonen, Mazza, Magyar - Särkipato.

Today, Giuventus's strategy involved concentrating on the flanks for their attacks, taking advantage of their brilliant level with that tactic. At 14 minutes played, Olli Virkkala came in from the right with the intention of giving Giuventus the lead, but his rocket of a shot rattled the crossbar. The Giuventus free kick 20 minutes into the match seemed wasted, as the shot was both short and off target. But was this actually a plan? The ball landed at the feet of Pere Francesc Gatell, who was completely unmarked in the box. That's 1 - 0! Metsis had to make a substitution after 21 minutes. János Magyar limped off the field and was replaced by Carlos Valente. Giuventus's Timur Kholodilin swung in a good chance from the left, but the visitors' defence were able to clear the ball. Giuventus's Anfós Perelló had an excellent opportunity after 30 minutes, shooting after receiving a pass from the right hand side, but he missed the goal by miles! The teams went for the halftime break at 1 - 0. Giuventus claimed to have seen most of the ball, and the statistics agreed with them - possession being 55 percent.

Metsis needed a fresh pair of legs on the field, and after 65 minutes Federico Mazza made way for Célestin Josso. After 68 minutes, the away team failed to deal with a good exchange of passes on the right, and Tomi Wild gave the Giuventus supporters even more to cheer about when he increased the lead to 2 - 0. After 75 minutes Metsis's Célestin Josso had to be carried off on a stretcher in agony. Augie Overdijk came in to replace him. 76 minutes in, Giuventus's Olli Virkkala received a yellow card for going into a challenge studs first. Giuventus had most of the ball, with 55 percent of possession.

Most important Giuventus player was Igor Malbaša. Gerrardo Grauer on the other hand, had a terrible day. Most important Metsis player was Enn Oese. Ari-Pekka Väätäinen on the other hand, had a terrible day. The match ends 2 - 0.
