Dark skies made the crowd of 37899 at Fort Real de São Filipe a little nervous, but the rain held off. José Ricardo Rafael Ferrero was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Roland Mathiasson and Thimo Renes. Everyone was excited about the upcoming Santiago derby and the crowd was divided evenly. Privateers started off with a 4-4-2 lineup. The following players had been chosen: Irun - Buron, Sapienza, Sadeh, Lopes - Lacara, Stadsholt, Angelino, Sheppard - Elder, Salamanca.

PRAIA had chosen a strategic 3-5-2 formation. The following players took the field: Pagter - Marcela, Valiante, Fernandes - Rosário Ferreira, Magriço, Ignat, Moreira, Gomes Vaz - Fernandes, Estêvão.

It was an obvious ambition of Privateers to use their titanic ability at attacking on the flanks. After 29 minutes PRAIA's Miguel Moreira contracted a slight foot injury, but didn't want to leave the game. A well placed corner kick from Matei Ignat was followed by João Magriço's hard but accurate header. The well executed routine resulted in a goal for PRAIA, the score now 0 - 1. The crowd was on its feet 34 minutes into the match, as Privateers's Luca Sapienza found himself unmarked in front of the goal after a dash up the left side. He calmly put away the 1 - 1 equaliser. The home crowd breathed a collective sigh of relief when Telmo Marcela was unable to put the ball in the net after his show of skill down the left 35 minutes into the match. He was seen beating the pitch in frustration at missing such a good chance to give his team the lead! With 37 minutes played Javier Sheppard almost put the home team one ahead on a cross coming in from the right, but the shot went just wide. Attacking on the wings was the choice for Privateers, and they were successfully passing the ball from the middle to the wings to attack. 1 - 1 was the score after the first half. Privateers claimed to have seen most of the ball, and the statistics agreed with them - possession being 53 percent.

54 minutes in, Privateers's Benny Sadeh received a yellow card for going into a challenge studs first. Due to a severely mistimed tackle, Paulo Fernandes of PRAIA spent some time on the grass writhing in agony before he could get up and continue the game. Telmo Marcela hit the corner kick straight to the keeper, but it was mishandled, giving PRAIA's Miguel Moreira an easy chance to knock it in for 1 - 2. Privateers's Júlio Elder put his head to a well placed ball, lifted in from the left, and scored to make the score 2 - 2 with 76 minutes showing on the scoreboard clock. It was obvious that Privateers had instructions to attack on the wings instead of in the middle. The home side put themselves ahead 3 - 2 after 78 minutes courtesy of a breakthrough from Luca Sapienza, who scored with a stunning volley following a cross from the right wing. Luca Sapienza of Privateers was booked for kicking the ball away after the whistle. Paulo Tiago Angelino showed why he is feared on the counterattack, breaking through in the middle and scoring for Privateers after 87 minutes to make the score 4 - 2. Privateers enjoyed most of the ball, as they maintained 60 percent of possession.

Júlio Elder performed admirably for Privateers. Feliciano Lopes was a disappointment, however. PRAIA's top performer was clearly João Magriço. On the other hand, Paulo Fernandes's play was disheartening. The match ends 4 - 2.
