The 1587 fans in attendance at Narva Sports Field were roasting in the hot sun. Johannes Oskarsson was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Terje Fidje and . Metsis started off with a 4-5-1 lineup. The following players took the field: Kautto - Leisti, Gonzato, Melone, Iglesia - Valente, Wahteristo, Naskali, Huvinen, Ahlqvist - Nurmirinta.

Samurait had chosen a strategic 3-5-2 formation. The following players had been chosen: Åkerman - Verhavert, Melkkilä, Kalliojärvi - Ferlini, Weisell, Eiger, Tapiovaara, Munizaga - Słoboda, Guggi.

Metsis were mostly trying to use their outstanding skill at attacking on the flanks. After some beautiful movement down the left wing, Carlos Valente scored for Metsis putting them ahead 1 - 0, after 11 minutes. Alessandro Pescio was called on to replace Samurait's Adir Eiger after 28 minutes following a nasty collision. After 35 minutes, Metsis's Vesa-Pekka Ahlqvist swiftly ran past Lauri Weisell and nutmegged the keeper! 2 - 0. By now, the players in Metsis felt that victory was guaranteed and began to play it safe, focusing on defence and not risking too much going forward. At 42 minutes, the visitors got a chance to reduce the score when a penalty was awarded, but Karo Tapiovaara, intimidated by the crowd, missed it. It was 2 - 0 at the break. Metsis enjoyed most of the ball, as they maintained 57 percent of possession.

Things were deteriorating for the away team as Metsis scored another to make it 3 - 0 after a left side attack resulted in a goal for Joni Leisti after 49 minutes. Several players seemed a little dazed by the warm weather, and were repeatedly tricked by the clever and agile César Iglesia. Vesa-Pekka Ahlqvist's speed was almost enough to give Metsis a goal after 80 minutes, but his nice pass to Jorma Nurmirinta was not taken care of properly. Usually a powerful player on the field, Ariel Słoboda looked kind of pale and tired under the hot sun. With 84 minutes played, Ariel Słoboda had a fantastic opportunity to reply but his shot from the middle flew harmlessly wide of the goal. Ariel Słoboda of Samurait received a yellow card after 85 minutes for unsportsmanlike behaviour. Metsis claimed to have seen most of the ball, and the statistics agreed with them - possession being 56 percent.

Most important Metsis player was Ville Kautto. On the other hand, Philip Melone's play was disheartening. Samurait's top performer was clearly Edvin Åkerman. Ariel Słoboda was a disappointment, however. The match ends 3 - 0.
