A brilliantly sunny day had enticed a crowd of 51988 to Korep's King Arena. Maciel Bras was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Rikkert van Akkeren and Tim Løber. The intense heat made it hard for players relying on strength or speed to shine. On the other hand, it provided perfect conditions for the more technical players. Starters: Oprişoi - Pitotti, Pądzik, Keuler - Morera, Rubio Escudero, Medrano Ruiz, Stumpf, Jordáki - Fehér, Manosalva.

They fielded: Szépvölgyi - Nikko, Cambón, Ferravante, Zamuda - Andreoletti, Sharpe, Tellman, Montagut, Hankó - Murgades.

It was to be a contest between two different football philosophies, since the home team started the game with a 3-5-2 formation while the visitors instead opted for 4-5-1. Counter-attacking seemed to be the preferred strategy of Koreps, taking advantage of their solid level with that tactic. Csillagok immediately set off using their passable skill at pressing their opponents. After a fine move down the middle Zsombor Jordáki nearly gave the home side a goal after 16 minutes. However the finishing shot went just wide. The terraces were silenced after 17 minutes when Csillagok's Jesús Montagut put the guests ahead 0 - 1, following an attack on the right. Csillagok came close to extending their lead as Adrià Murgades delivered a low effort on goal from the right after 34 minutes, but the angle was too narrow and the shot went harmlessly into the side netting. The crowd roared in delight as Máté Fehér finished off a spectacular series of passes through the middle to even the score for Koreps 38 minutes into the match. 1 - 1. Csillagok's Elmo Sharpe made use of his speed to get free of the defence, but he still couldn't get a shot off 40 minutes into the match. Csillagok's József Hankó gave the visitors a 1 - 2 lead after 43 minutes with a superb strike from the right. Daniel-Cristian Oprişoi got a fingertip on David Andreoletti's shot from the left 44 minutes in, and managed to keep the visitors from going up another goal. The pressing tactics used by Csillagok were successful as the ball remained close to the half way line at all times. 1 - 2 was the score after the first half. Possession in the forty-five minutes was dominated by Koreps, with 59 percent of the ball.

Csillagok's ability to press all over the field frequently paid dividends. 52 minutes in, Koreps's Juan Medrano Ruiz received a yellow card for going into a challenge studs first. Koreps put pressure on the visitors' central defence 62 minutes into the game, but József Stumpf couldn't find an opening. Germund Tellman of Csillagok received a yellow card after 74 minutes for unsportsmanlike behaviour. As the match nears its end, the referee has deemed it appropriate to add 1 minute as stoppage time. At this time in the match, Csillagok were using their skill at pressing to successfully stifle the game. Just a few inches to the right, and the visitors could have had a goal 89 minutes into the match. Anacondo Cambón surely wishes he could do that free kick over again. The match ends 1 - 2. Koreps had most of the ball, with 56 percent of possession.

Gonzalo Rubio Escudero performed admirably for Koreps. Zsombor Jordáki turned in a dismal performance, however. Most important Csillagok player was József Hankó. Gianpiero Ferravante was a disappointment, however.
