41009 fans braved the pouring rain at Raymond "La Science". Aiman Al-Waily was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Andrej Tabar and Xosé Arxóns. United had chosen a strategic 2-5-3 formation. The following players had been chosen: Point - Niane, Weytens - Billen, Van Yper, Manzoni, Ortaarış, Schalley - Yıldız, Van Laere, Zeltkalis.

A 5-3-2 alignment was the formation of choice for Seefhoek. They fielded: Van Buynder - Fourneau, Bricmont, Winters, Bronchart, De Wispelaere - Votquenne, Simon, Wymeersch - Ucur, Galloy.

Counter-attacking seemed to be the preferred strategy of Seefhoek, taking advantage of their magical level with that tactic. With 7 minutes having been played, his teammates looked on in disbelief as Ç. Ortaarış thoughtlessly misplayed the ball, setting up Seefhoek's S. Galloy for an easy goal. 0 - 1. Some fine passing in the middle of the pitch, carving open the away defence, should have led to a goal for United, but D. Yıldız's shot went over the bar. Seefhoek mounted an inspired counterattack down the right wing after 12 minutes, but H. Ucur was unable to convert from short range. 23 minutes into the game, J. Point had to leave the pitch due to a knee injury. In came J. Lobatón. United put pressure on the visitors' central defence 31 minutes into the game, but Ç. Ortaarış couldn't find an opening. D. Yıldız made a superb strike after 31 minutes with a shot straight in front of the goal after a long ball through the middle, but one of the visitors' defenders got a foot in at the last second and warded it off for a corner. A. Zeltkalis charged down the left and had a wonderful opportunity to score the equaliser for United, but the shot went well wide of the goal. H. Ucur was in the clear after breaking the offside trap following a Seefhoek counterattack from the left after 33 minutes. His neat finish made the score 0 - 2. After 36 minutes, following yet another great corner, S. Votquenne's flick on at the near post reached G. Fourneau, who was just wide with his snapshot - the ball went out for a goal kick. United's N. Niane managed a superb strike from the left after 37 minutes that would have left goalkeeper R. Van Buynder without a chance, had it not hit the post. Seefhoek's defence sent a ball soaring up the middle on a beautiful counterattack with 38 minutes gone, but S. Galloy's finish was met by the reaching hands of the keeper. Halftime score was 0 - 2. United enjoyed most of the ball, as they maintained 71 percent of possession.

United had a brilliant opportunity to reply as T. Van Laere received a high ball from the right, striking the ball in the air. Only R. Van Buynder's reflexes saved him. After several obvious shirt pulling incidents, S. Galloy got himself booked. The manager of Seefhoek was not happy. It took several tries, but United managed to break through on the left after 70 minutes, getting the ball to K. Van Yper who easily reduced the lead to make the score 1 - 2. Content with how the game was proceeding, the Seefhoek coach let D. Vandersmissen replace C. Winters after 75 minutes. Still ahead in the game after 76 minutes, Seefhoek made some tactical adjustments. S. Votquenne and D. Vandersmissen swapped positions. After 80 minutes Seefhoek tried to exploit their counterattacking skills, unfortunately, S. Galloy's shot sailed wide after his break down the right. D. Vandersmissen of Seefhoek received a yellow card after 81 minutes for unsportsmanlike behaviour. United's O. Manzoni put his head to a high ball coming in from the right after 86 minutes, but the ball went wide. 87 minutes in, United's F. Weytens received a yellow card for going into a challenge studs first. United's K. Van Yper almost tied things up with 87 minutes played after breaking through on the right, but his shot deflected off the post. H. Ucur knocked one home from a counterattack down the right wing, making the score 1 - 3 after 88 minutes. United had most of the ball, with 71 percent of possession.

United's top performer was clearly A. Zeltkalis. J. Lobatón was a disappointment, however. S. Galloy performed admirably for Seefhoek. D. Vandersmissen on the other hand, had a terrible day. The match ends 1 - 3.
