Faur gave Kronstadt the lead as he successfully challenged the guests' central defenders, then slotted the ball into the bottom corner, giving the keeper no chance. 1 - 0 Kronstadt managed to extend their lead to 2 - 0 when I. Grum cut in neatly from the left side and struck a fine shot past the away team's goalkeeper. Things were going to get worse for the visitors. M. Faur squirmed through their central defence after 30 minutes, increasing the lead to 3 - 0. Confident in their lead, Kronstadt's players relaxed and focused more on defending the lead than increasing it. M. Faur had a fantastic opportunity to put Kronstadt up another goal 39 minutes into the match after a pass through the middle set him free, but he fired just over the crossbar. L. Daan increased the lead for Kronstadt to 4 - 0, getting a head onto a hooked ball from the right. The ball looked to have taken a deflection on the way in, but he's claiming it! 4 - 0 was the score after the first half. Possession in the forty-five minutes was dominated by Kronstadt, with 71 percent of the ball.

After 56 minutes, St-Etienne switched L. Saintot with Y. Mathieu, hoping for a quick impact on the pitch. A. van Eendenburg became the new St-Etienne captain. J. Perrier was called on to replace St-Etienne's R. Renault after 56 minutes following a nasty collision. Kronstadt's L. Daan had an excellent opportunity after 57 minutes, shooting after receiving a pass from the right hand side, but he missed the goal by miles! After 67 minutes, St-Etienne's J. Perrier swiftly ran past L. Daan and nutmegged the keeper! 4 - 1. Instead of playing a 50/50 ball into the penalty area, St-Etienne's J. Perrier skipped past the marking defender and passed the ball to M. Havard who finished it off from distance. The keeper could only stand and watch as the hard shot hit the underside of the cross bar, and in to make it 4 - 2 with 68 minutes played. Kronstadt solidified their lead at the 69 minute mark, as F. Bucur dribbled the ball through the opposing central defence and scored to make it 5 - 2. The bench was restless, and with 72 minutes passed St-Etienne's coach gave M. Brasselet the opportunity the player had been hoping for. A. van Eendenburg reluctantly left the field. As the captain was no longer on the pitch, C. Saez took over the role of being the St-Etienne captain. 74 minutes in, Kronstadt's E. Hohnschild received a yellow card for going into a challenge studs first. With 75 minutes played, Kronstadt's L. Daan almost extended the lead, but his shot from the left glanced off the top of the bar to fall behind the net. M. Coandă left the field with a smile on his face as he was substituted 89 minutes into the game, as his team was in the lead. I. Costin was the replacement. Possession in this half belonged to Kronstadt, who controlled the ball 67 percent of the time.

Kronstadt's best player was M. Faur. However, H. Sharf made a disastrous appearance. Y. Mathieu performed admirably for St-Etienne. W. Milliet turned in a dismal performance, however. The match ends 5 - 2.
