Humboldt United fielded a 3-5-2 lineup. For Sion.F.C, the formation of choice was 5-5-0. It was obvious that Sion.F.C were using their brilliant pressing skill as their primary tactic. 5 minutes in, Humboldt appeared unsure on how to play and their organisation was only weak. At this time in the match, Sion.F.C were using their skill at pressing to successfully stifle the game. Humboldt's Tomi Refkivanza got himself booked for a foul. Sion.F.C pressed their opponents, causing the game to be a bit of a stalemate at times. The teams went for the halftime break at 0 - 0. Sion.F.C claimed to have seen most of the ball, and the statistics agreed with them - possession being 77 percent.

During the break, Humboldt's coach went through the team's tactics yet again, getting them up to passable organisation. Ovidijus Kabakas went down after twisting his left ankle in minute 65, but was able to continue the match none the less. Sion.F.C's talent at pressing frustrated the spectators as the game became a dire midfield struggle. 69 minutes into the game, Humboldt seemed a little tentative in their play as their organization fell to inadequate. Ajay Ooft acted with superior experience when, 72 minutes into the match, he predicted a pass, intercepted it and then finished off with a goal. 1 - 0 for Humboldt! The bench was restless, and with 79 minutes passed Sion.F.C's coach gave José Alberto Nualart the opportunity the player had been hoping for. Ovidijus Kabakas reluctantly left the field. After 81 minutes, Sion.F.C switched Antonio Estornell with Giorgio Mosciatti, hoping for a quick impact on the pitch. Antonio Estornell was coming off, and had placed his last free kick for the day. That meant that Adrien Stark got the chance to showcase his dead ball skills. Although the whole team were struggling to impress, Sion.F.C's Alexey Lyakh was singled out as being the problem as he was called off the pitch after 89 minutes. Tobias Tungbo was given a chance to change things around. As the captain was no longer on the pitch, Tobias Tungbo took over the role of being the Sion.F.C captain. The referee announced 1 minute of stoppage time, giving fans a slim hope that their team could get one more attack in before this was all over. The match ends 1 - 0. Sion.F.C enjoyed most of the ball, as they maintained 73 percent of possession.

The most dominating Humboldt player was without a doubt Ruud Gangadin. Vasco Zeeuw on the other hand, had a terrible day. Sion.F.C's best player was Giorgio Mosciatti. On the other hand, Gildas Périnet's play was disheartening.
