The weather was pretty good, and a crowd of 19777 had shown up at Kurmju pirksti Arena for the match. was the appointed referee with assistance provided by and . The derby had been the talk of Rīga all week and fans of both teams could be seen throughout the stadium. Kurmju tactics involved an interesting 4-4-2 combination. They fielded: van der Lem - Abadal, Coscelli, Fransson, Dedziņš - Candio, Naila, Della Ventura, Pūris - Kløvedal, Bencze.

FK-U-20 had chosen a strategic 4-4-2 formation. Starters: Pupiņš - Skujiņš, Auris, Reginevich, Viciens - Shneyderov, Vilks, Desainis, Barinov - Vēveris, Bulduris.

Kurmju saw most attack opportunities on the wings, taking advantage of their brilliant level with that tactic. The referee showed FK-U-20's Roberts Auris the yellow card after a particularly nasty challenge. With 34 minutes played, the home side managed to get a 1 - 0 lead as Mareks Dedziņš flipped the ball in after a cross from the right. The opposing supporters gave the referee an earful when he only gave Thure Kløvedal from Kurmju a yellow card after a mistimed challenge from behind 36 minutes into the game. That was far too lenient! With 38 minutes gone, Kurmju had a free kick in a decent position. Despite this being a great chance for a shot, they tried a cheeky move intended to bypass the defence. However, Thure Kløvedal did not manage to connect with it cleanly and the ball went out. Kurmju's Otomārs Pūris saw his fine effort strike the top of the bar following some good work up the middle by his teammates after 39 minutes. With 43 minutes played, Calogero Coscelli of Kurmju fell dramatically just outside the penalty area. However, the referee was unimpressed, and booked him for diving. 1 - 0 was the halftime score. Kurmju claimed to have seen most of the ball, and the statistics agreed with them - possession being 65 percent.

Carlo Candio unleashed a swerving effort from the right that the visitors' keeper did well to tip wide. A magnificent combination in the middle resulted in Kurmju's Thure Kløvedal increasing the lead to 2 - 0. Kurmju solidified their lead at the 63 minute mark, as Thure Kløvedal dribbled the ball through the opposing central defence and scored to make it 3 - 0. By now, the players in Kurmju felt that victory was guaranteed and began to play it safe, focusing on defence and not risking too much going forward. After several obvious shirt pulling incidents, Paul John Naila got himself booked. The manager of Kurmju was not happy. With 75 minutes gone, Kurmju's Thure Kløvedal had to leave the pitch after talking back to the referee and receiving his second booking. Possession in the forty-five minutes was dominated by Kurmju, with 69 percent of the ball.

The most dominating Kurmju player was without a doubt Krisztofer Bencze. However, Pietro Antonio Della Ventura made a disastrous appearance. FK-U-20's best player was Gordejs Vilks. Jaraslau Reginevich on the other hand, had a terrible day. The match ends 3 - 0.
