The crowd of 22969 turning up at GKB Arena today were greeted with some nasty showers of rain. Domingo Manzanares was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Muftaah Al-Kaabei and Anton Demenev. The pitch was a disaster, due to all the rain. This spelled problems for the more sophisticated players, who usually could rely on speed or technique. For those relying on grit and strength, it actually meant an edge. The following players had been chosen: Camilleri - Bänninger, Mory, Manuali, Hiltebrand, Bänninger - Deiss, Thoreau, Brossaud, Meister - Fröhler.

They fielded: Arvanitidis - Velasco Mendoza, Ferrari, Plessi - Barócsai, Sowiński, Harlacher, Nisbet - Cogo, Čaklovica, Ferla.

The teams had chosen different formations for the match. Home team Stiflers Mom went for 5-4-1 while Blue-White Hoppers has decided to play a 3-4-3 lineup. Using their counter-attacking abilities was the strategy of choice for Stiflers on this day, taking advantage of their brilliant level with that tactic. Blue-White mostly ignored the flanks in favour of their ability to attack in the middle, taking advantage of their mythical level with that tactic. Some good play on the left wing created an opportunity for the visitors 2 minutes into the match, and Levente Barócsai wasn't about to let it go by. He got past the defenders and fired a shot that the keeper just missed. 0 - 1 for the visitors. With the scoreboard showing that 11 minutes had been played, Blue-White nearly put themselves up another goal after Zuhdija Čaklovica came through on the left. Fortunately for the home crowd, the keeper made the save. Stiflers's counterattacks created a good chance for Kuno Bänninger on the right after 12 minutes, but he could only look on with dismay as his strike rebounded off the crossbar. Alexandre Brossaud seems to have an uncanny ability to try the unusual. He nearly produced a great goal - unfortunately for Stiflers his shot went just wide this time. Blue-White players heard their coach's words ringing in their ears and steered their wing attacks to the middle instead. After 30 minutes a combination in the middle resulted in a through ball for Cosimo Cogo who increased Blue-White's lead to 0 - 2. The referee showed Stiflers's Kilian Meister the yellow card after a particularly nasty challenge. 35 minutes into the game, Kilian Meister had to leave the field due to a rib injury. This gave Reno Grossglauser a chance to take to the field instead. Andrea Manuali neatly controlled the ball after a short corner, and knocked it on to Kuno Bänninger who had the whole net open before him, but only managed to hit the post. After 42 minutes, Blue-White's Albert Sowiński burst through the central defence and let loose a cannonball of a shot, scoring for 0 - 3. It was 0 - 3 at the break. Possession in this half belonged to Blue-White, who controlled the ball 66 percent of the time.

The opposing supporters gave the referee an earful when he only gave Gabriele Ferla from Blue-White a yellow card after a mistimed challenge from behind 49 minutes into the game. That was far too lenient! Stiflers's Domenico Hiltebrand soared above the crowd, but couldn't knock the corner home 56 minutes into the match. Zuhdija Čaklovica left the field with a smile on his face as he was substituted 60 minutes into the game, as his team was in the lead. Armin Muller was the replacement. An indecisive keeper looked on as a free kick by Blue-White's Virgilio Plessi put the visitors up 0 - 4 after 81 minutes. 83 minutes into the game, Blue-White were awarded a penalty and Virgilio Plessi was able to increase the visitors' lead to 0 - 5 rolling the ball in by the right post. As the match nears its end, the referee has deemed it appropriate to add 2 minutes as stoppage time. The match ends 0 - 5. Blue-White claimed to have seen most of the ball, and the statistics agreed with them - possession being 67 percent.

Stiflers's top performer was clearly Emanuel Bänninger. However, Quentin Mory made a disastrous appearance. Ermis Arvanitidis performed admirably for Blue-White. Derrick Nisbet on the other hand, had a terrible day.
