The 1059 spectators at Giacinto Facchetti were in for an afternoon of sunshine. Jean-Rémy Jeauneau was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Spencer Kearns and . The match took place on neutral ground. A 2-5-3 alignment was the formation of choice for PHYXIUS. They fielded: Sierra - Runcan, Unguraş - Iordăchescu, Berende, Oppedisano, Jelenovics, Schopp - Tagliaro, Cristofaro, Björklund.

F.C.SPAPTN tactics involved an interesting 4-4-2 combination. The following players had been chosen: Guasch - Geva, Paşcu, Bordei, Bucătaru - Zwolsman, Iovan, Beistegui, Saavedra - Castro Pereira, Hauch.

Counter-attacking seemed to be the preferred strategy of F.C.SPAPTN, taking advantage of their excellent level with that tactic. F.C.SPAPTN had several good opportunities to take the lead, especially 25 minutes in when Avni Geva came up alone against Sergio Sierra who managed a block. Many thought Victor Iordăchescu ought to have been awarded a penalty 30 minutes into the game, as he went down trying to dribble around Eudald Guasch after a determined run through the middle. Giuseppe Cristofaro's technique was perfect on this sunny day and led to some breathtaking tricks that bamboozled the defence. PHYXIUS were awarded a penalty after 36 minutes of play, but Claudian Runcan's shot skimmed just wide. Bogdan Paşcu knocked one home from a counterattack down the right wing, making the score 0 - 1 after 37 minutes. Halftime score was 0 - 1. Possession in the forty-five minutes was dominated by PHYXIUS, with 66 percent of the ball.

After 51 minutes, PHYXIUS switched Sergio Sierra with Sung-Hoon Cho, hoping for a quick impact on the pitch. Sung-Hoon Cho was handed the PHYXIUS captain's armband. Morgan Oppedisano really should have scored when he was chosen by fate to confront a wide open goal following a great play by Victor Iordăchescu after a corner. Marcel Hauch wanted to play on, but the F.C.SPAPTN coach had other ideas, and he was replaced 64 minutes into the game by Robert Mičan. As Marcel Hauch left the field, the coach signaled to Gabi Iovan to be the new set pieces taker. No matter how hard he tried, Teemu Björklund just couldn't get his shot past the visitors' right side defence after 65 minutes. The home crowd was pulling their hair out after Claudian Runcan missed a penalty shot by miles 69 minutes into the game. Bogdan Paşcu behaved like an inexperienced youth player after 72 minutes as he gave the ball away to Teemu Björklund. Lucky for him though, there was no goal. After several obvious shirt pulling incidents, Theo Zwolsman got himself booked. The manager of F.C.SPAPTN was not happy. On any other day, Claudian Runcan's free kick would have found the back of the net to tie the game for PHYXIUS, but not today - the visitors' keeper displayed extraordinary reflexes as he blocked the shot harmlessly to the side. A drive down the left side allowed Josué Castro Pereira to get in close and score another goal for F.C.SPAPTN after 78 minutes, taking the score to 0 - 2. Teemu Björklund didn't pace himself at all, and after a series of daring offensive runs he was too tired to help out in the defensive play. After 80 minutes a combination in the middle resulted in a through ball for Ciprian Bucătaru who increased F.C.SPAPTN's lead to 0 - 3. 87 minutes into the game, Juan Saavedra had to leave the pitch due to a knee injury. In came Liviu Cristea. After 89 minutes, Fabrizio Tagliaro had a good opportunity to reduce the scoreline for PHYXIUS with a chance created through the middle, but wasn't cool enough. The ball went miles over the bar. PHYXIUS enjoyed most of the ball, as they maintained 62 percent of possession.

PHYXIUS's top performer was clearly Fabrizio Tagliaro. Adrian-Marian Berende turned in a dismal performance, however. The most dominating F.C.SPAPTN player was without a doubt Theo Zwolsman. Bogdan Paşcu was a disappointment, however. The match ends 0 - 3.
