1612 punters turned up at LIPPO Stadion, and despite threatening clouds on the horizon, no rain came. Nunzio Boneccher was the appointed referee with assistance provided by and Martinus Hopmans. Ruutanan_Rusinat started off with a 3-4-3 lineup. Lineup: Ballottazzo - Moldovan, Sinding, Del Carpio - Boujelben, Hautsalo, Castelijn, Inkiläinen - Ojamo, Stýblo, Lammi.

A 5-5-0 alignment was the formation of choice for Metsis. Starters: Paatero - Nergård, Pakarinen, Ritari, Aarresuo, Kyttä - de Gier, Zetterner, Gustafsson, Wittemberg, Burmeister -.

Metsis used their weak skill at pressing to cut off the attack angles of their opponents all over the field. With 10 minutes gone, a long pass from the defence of Ruutanan_Rusinat resulted in a counterattack that set Steen Rud Sinding free through the middle, but the keeper made a spectacular diving save. The opposing supporters gave the referee an earful when he only gave Riewerd Castelijn from Ruutanan_Rusinat a yellow card after a mistimed challenge from behind 22 minutes into the game. That was far too lenient! 30 minutes had elapsed when a great chance for Ruutanan_Rusinat to take the lead after a good cross from the right found Pentti Lammi alone with the keeper, but he chipped it to the wrong side of the post. It was 0 - 0 at the break. Metsis enjoyed most of the ball, as they maintained 65 percent of possession.

Ruutanan_Rusinat's Hemmo Hautsalo was shown a yellow card for standing over the ball and blocking an opponent's quick free kick after 52 minutes. A penalty was given after 53 minutes, allowing the visitors to gain the lead: 0 - 1. Even Nergård was the scorer. The coach of Metsis was happy with the game so far, but still wanted to change the line up. After 60 minutes, Veikka Vihijärvi came on for Ove Zetterner. 72 minutes into the game Metsis managed a counterattack, but Kalle Aarresuo took a soft shot from the left flank that was easy prey for the alert keeper. Metsis pressed their opponents, causing the game to be a bit of a stalemate at times. Metsis had most of the ball, with 68 percent of possession.

Ruutanan_Rusinat's top performer was clearly Steen Rud Sinding. Jiří Stýblo on the other hand, had a terrible day. Metsis's best player was Veikka Vihijärvi. Juho Ritari was a disappointment, however. The match ends 0 - 1.
