BPU 2 - 2 Olympique

Weather conditions were fairly good for football, and Pythons Arena saw a crowd turnout of 25914. was the appointed referee with assistance provided by and . BPU started off with a 3-5-2 lineup. Starters: Vähäkangas - Podlaski, Jagerman, Eckholt - Jonsson, Keudell, Khrisanov, Alexandrov, Saa - Bonvalot, Albecki.

A 2-5-3 alignment was the formation of choice for Olympique. The following players had been chosen: Jaksch - Luostarinen, Bustamante - Sangsom, Tselempis, Savary, Steger, Mejer - Hugon, Hopland, Kattenberg.

Today, BPU's strategy involved concentrating on the flanks for their attacks, taking advantage of their brilliant level with that tactic. Down the middle came Espen Hopland, making a fantastic play that nearly had Olympique take the lead after 7 minutes, but Petri Vähäkangas preserved the tie. Wojciech Podlaski received some harsh words from his coach after he acted foolishly 20 minutes into the match, probably out of lack of experience, and almost let an opponent score. 21 minutes into the game, Pornsak Sangsom had to leave the pitch due to a knee injury. In came David Villeroy. The home side put themselves ahead 1 - 0 after 37 minutes courtesy of a breakthrough from Bronisław Albecki, who scored with a stunning volley following a cross from the right wing. BPU's Bronisław Albecki was shown a yellow card for standing over the ball and blocking an opponent's quick free kick after 38 minutes. Nicolas Bonvalot had a fantastic opportunity to put BPU up another goal 41 minutes into the match after a pass through the middle set him free, but he fired just over the crossbar. After 42 minutes BPU's Mikael Jonsson limped slightly after a late challenge, but he was able to continue. The visitors were awarded a penalty by the referee 43 minutes into the match, much to the anger of the home crowd. Eetu Luostarinen took advantage of the situation and scored to make it 1 - 1. 1 - 1 was the score after the first half. Possession in the forty-five minutes was dominated by BPU, with 54 percent of the ball.

With 51 minutes gone, BPU 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, Tzvetan Alexandrov did not manage to connect with it cleanly and the ball went out. With 55 minutes played, the home side managed to get a 2 - 1 lead as Nicolas Bonvalot flipped the ball in after a cross from the right. BPU's Mikael Jonsson had a good first touch on the flank, but was crowded and, after a change of plan, sent the ball to Bronisław Albecki who somehow managed to curl the ball wide. The home team will be cursing Gabriel Hugon for weeks; he finished off a great pass from the left, knocking it past the keeper without a problem. The match was level at 2 - 2 after 70 minutes. BPU enjoyed most of the ball, as they maintained 54 percent of possession.

BPU's top performer was clearly Christian Keudell. Petri Vähäkangas turned in a dismal performance, however. Olympique's best player was Philipp Steger. On the other hand, David Villeroy's play was disheartening. The match ends 2 - 2.
