It had rained all day, but 470 hardy fans still made it out to Rufijii Arena. Rui Silva was the appointed referee with assistance provided by and . Poppotami had chosen a strategic 4-3-3 formation. They fielded: Pellicciotta - Deneken, Rubini, Jarmoc, Bonilla - Marani, Lanzetti, Tanno - Gozza, Hatif, Nonbo.

archimede decided to use a 3-5-2 set up. Starters: Rodríguez - Skhulukhia, Bozzolo, Ribet - Ferguson, Barnier, Curelea, Höllerer, Mojardo - Montani, Pizarro.

Carmine Ribet was struggling to make the ball dance with his usual trickery and panache, and the opposing players had little trouble shutting him down in these muddy conditions. The crowd gasped as Bakuri Skhulukhia of archimede was flattened by an opponent after 4 minutes and had to be carried off. Scott Talbot came in off the bench. 0 - 1 was the score with 17 minutes played, after Lucio Bozzolo cut through the central defence and chipped home a goal for archimede. After 28 minutes of play, Basilio Marani evened things up for Poppotami with an impressive goal coming up the middle. 1 - 1. Lucio Bozzolo did not have a good day today, often losing his footing on the muddy pitch. The terraces were silenced after 33 minutes when archimede's Bryan Ferguson put the guests ahead 1 - 2, following an attack on the right. Mario Tanno showed the skills that make him a real crowd pleaser as he, after 35 minutes, wove through the guests' entire central defence and put the 2 - 2 equaliser away. It was 2 - 2 at the break. archimede had most of the ball, with 51 percent of possession.

52 minutes into the game, Giorgio Montani finished off a archimede left wing counterattack, making the score 2 - 3. Poppotami's Aage Nonbo was shown a yellow card after 61 minutes for slicing down an opponent. Due to a severely mistimed tackle, Radolph Höllerer of archimede spent some time on the grass writhing in agony before he could get up and continue the game. archimede came close to extending their lead as Lucio Bozzolo delivered a low effort on goal from the right after 73 minutes, but the angle was too narrow and the shot went harmlessly into the side netting. The referee showed archimede's Giorgio Montani the yellow card after a particularly nasty challenge. The player down was Natalino Gozza. The Poppotami bench looked worried for a while, but in the end he managed to get up. The home crowd was not impressed when Dré Barnier came in from the right, shooting hard to score after 89 minutes. archimede were now up 2 - 4. archimede claimed to have seen most of the ball, and the statistics agreed with them - possession being 53 percent.

The most dominating Poppotami player was without a doubt Aage Nonbo. However, Julio Deneken made a disastrous appearance. Most important archimede player was Giorgio Montani. Dré Barnier turned in a dismal performance, however. The match ends 2 - 4.
