The weather was pretty good, and a crowd of 33962 had shown up at Stade Marek Tuffner for the match. Mathieu Hugel was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Zygfryd Dosz and Eugenio Quercia. United tactics involved an interesting 5-4-1 combination. Lineup: Merkl - Puffky, Richards, Koschembahr, Stellmacher, Nuhiu - Seidberger, Wasmundt, Bertasi, Slupsky - Kollenda.

A 4-5-1 alignment was the formation of choice for Juventus. The following players had been chosen: Houze - Bosquet, Agüera, Zeddelmann, Grimpilas - Xarpell, Schur, Orner, Blardone, Chudý - Celín.

Counter-attacking seemed to be the preferred strategy of United, taking advantage of their titanic level with that tactic. Carles Xarpell's speed is always a threat when he gets a little room to move, and 4 minutes into the match was no different as he broke free of his man to send a delightful through ball to Martín Celín who knocked it in for Juventus. 0 - 1! Martín Celín of Juventus seemed to be floating in the air as he elegantly headed in to make the score 0 - 2 after a corner kick that was nicely executed by Xavi Bosquet. United mounted an inspired counterattack down the right wing after 23 minutes, but Oded Slupsky was unable to convert from short range. United's Oded Slupsky had the ball at his feet in front of goal after a quickly taken free kick after 30 minutes, but was robbed of it in the blink of an eye by an onrushing defender. Oded Slupsky knocked one home from a counterattack down the right wing, making the score 1 - 2 after 32 minutes. Halftime score was 1 - 2. Juventus claimed to have seen most of the ball, and the statistics agreed with them - possession being 56 percent.

A counterattack by United after 50 minutes could have resulted in a goal, but Domenic Seidberger, coming in on the left, couldn't get the shot off. Gunter Stellmacher charged down the left and had a wonderful opportunity to score the equaliser for United, but the shot went well wide of the goal. Vincent Chudý left the field with a smile on his face as he was substituted 80 minutes into the game, as his team was in the lead. Jørn Fig Nielsen was the replacement. Juventus's Carles Xarpell placed the ball right at his teammate's feet after a corner, but Sanel Blardone couldn't finish. Having been awarded a free kick in an awkward position after 85 minutes, Juventus did not go for a shot but instead fired the ball hard into the 6 yard box. After a brief tussle with his marker, Rudolf Zeddelmann was able to power the ball past the keeper to make the score 1 - 3. At this point, it was obvious that the players of Juventus lowered the tempo and became more defensively oriented. United's defence sent a ball soaring up the middle on a beautiful counterattack with 88 minutes gone, but Gregor Wasmundt's finish was met by the reaching hands of the keeper. Juventus had most of the ball, with 55 percent of possession.

The most dominating United player was without a doubt Gunter Stellmacher. However, Oded Slupsky made a disastrous appearance. Leandro Orner performed admirably for Juventus. Jørn Fig Nielsen turned in a dismal performance, however. The match ends 1 - 3.
