Clouds darkened the skies at Municipal Arena as 2807 spectators turned up for the match. Edouard 'el Gladiador' Thill was the appointed referee with assistance provided by and Amir Arsalan Baba Mohammadi. Spicul decided to use a 3-4-3 set up. They fielded: Bölöni - Omazzi, Dima, Mallet - Maslakov, Nitã, Djurhuus, Crivitz - Căldăruş, Čaklovica, Gusmai.

Ballhonka started off with a 3-5-2 lineup. Lineup: Volden - Reyero, Ng, Bukhave - Sjölind, Baardsen, Burnham, Heggheim, Birkelund - Pitzer, Kurtdemir.

The terraces were silenced after 7 minutes when Ballhonka's Rolf Heggheim put the guests ahead 0 - 1, following an attack on the right. Neculai Dima was ever so close to scoring after an excellent corner was beautifully flicked on by Jens-Harald Crivitz, but the ball bounced off the post to safety. Cãlin Bölöni got a fingertip on Emil Birkelund's shot from the left 41 minutes in, and managed to keep the visitors from going up another goal. John Djurhuus showed the skills that make him a real crowd pleaser as he, after 42 minutes, wove through the guests' entire central defence and put the 1 - 1 equaliser away. Ballhonka took the lead 43 minutes into the game, making the score 1 - 2 after some elegant movement down the middle. Gaffar Kurtdemir was the scorer. Ballhonka increased their lead after 44 minutes when Virg Burnham broke through on the right, upping the score to 1 - 3, much to the home crowd's dismay. 44 minutes in, Spicul's Marcello Gusmai received a yellow card for going into a challenge studs first. Einar Baardsen of Ballhonka had to be helped off the pitch as an injury meant he was unable to finish the game. Kuzey Feriser came in to finish the match. The teams went for the halftime break at 1 - 3. Possession in this half belonged to Ballhonka, who controlled the ball 52 percent of the time.

The crowd groaned when Suljo Čaklovica, having maneuvered his way down the right, fired the ball just wide and missed a great opportunity to reduce the deficit for Spicul. After the ball was lifted in from the left, Kuzey Feriser was on his own in the home side's penalty area and should have scored after 54 minutes, but missed, probably due to lack of concentration. It took several tries, but Spicul managed to break through on the left after 56 minutes, getting the ball to Vyacheslav Maslakov who easily reduced the lead to make the score 2 - 3. Kuzey Feriser of Ballhonka took advantage of a mistake on the home side's right after 64 minutes which increased the away team's lead to 2 - 4. The players of Ballhonka now seemed to think the job was done and acted more defensively, just waiting for the ref to blow the final whistle. After 65 minutes, Spicul switched Marcello Gusmai with Yiorgis Kasselas, hoping for a quick impact on the pitch. With 70 minutes played, Jens-Harald Crivitz was very close to reducing the score for Spicul with a low drive from the left, but a defender stuck his foot out just in the nick of time, blocking the shot to a corner. Spicul reduced the lead to 3 - 4 with 74 minutes on the clock when Neculai Dima got the best of a ball floated in from the left. After several obvious shirt pulling incidents, Emil Birkelund got himself booked. The manager of Ballhonka was not happy. Possession in the forty-five minutes was dominated by Ballhonka, with 57 percent of the ball.

George-Mihai Căldăruş performed admirably for Spicul. Cãlin Bölöni was a disappointment, however. Ballhonka's best player was Rolf Heggheim. On the other hand, Erik Sjölind's play was disheartening. The match ends 3 - 4.
