RöPS started off with a 5-4-1 lineup. They fielded: Savonsaari - Del Boca, Kjellsson, Sallansalo, Horteu, Dietzen - Ristilä, Isoherranen, Aittamäki, Nivet - Suomi.

4 minutes had elapsed when a great chance for Chance to take the lead after a good cross from the right found Bolesław Kęski alone with the keeper, but he chipped it to the wrong side of the post. The referee signaled a penalty for the home side after 7 minutes, amid vocal protests from the visitors. Chance fans erupted in celebration as Luciano De Luca rifled the ball into the the top corner. 1 - 0! RöPS almost scored after a swift counterattack 9 minutes into the game, but Jean-René Nivet put the shot from the left flank just outside the goal. Olivier Rinfret had a fantastic opportunity to put Chance up another goal 17 minutes into the match after a pass through the middle set him free, but he fired just over the crossbar. Cheers filled the stadium as Urlegi Goihenetxe broke through the visitors' central defence to put away the ball to increase the lead to 2 - 0 to Chance. The teams went for the halftime break at 2 - 0. Chance claimed to have seen most of the ball, and the statistics agreed with them - possession being 57 percent.

Luciano De Luca increased Chance's lead to 3 - 0 with a penalty spot cannonball. Jean-René Nivet's speed was clear to see after 69 minutes, as he darted down the wing and released Janne Suomi who placed the ball into the back of the net to make the score 3 - 1. The referee showed RöPS's Jean-René Nivet the yellow card after a particularly nasty challenge. Chance's Luciano De Luca struck his penalty well enough to beat the goalkeeper and extend the home team's lead to 4 - 1 after 84 minutes. That was his third goal of the match - a hat trick for Luciano De Luca. The players of Chance now seemed to think the job was done and acted more defensively, just waiting for the ref to blow the final whistle. Chance enjoyed most of the ball, as they maintained 63 percent of possession.

Chance's best player was Lorenzo Bazzanti. Per Pilgren was a disappointment, however. Most important RöPS player was Luca Dietzen. Roni Savonsaari on the other hand, had a terrible day. The match ends 4 - 1.
