The 32127 spectators at AIA ARENA were in for an afternoon of sunshine. Augusto Filipe Silva Garcia was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Drahoslav Mátl and Felipe Polastry. The weather was sunny, which meant perfect conditions for technical players in both teams. However, it was also quite warm, which meant quick or physically strong players were drained faster and couldn't play their best game. The following players had been chosen: Brechot - Vehviläinen, Bloem, Cooke, Frýdl, Bardulla - Kaźmierczyk, Hartmannsdorf, Ilić, Alighini - Museveni.

The following players took the field: Düzen - Dashev, Tenchev, Garufa - Ahlskär, Ergönül, Guillot, Wojniusz, Hagen - Edvardsen, Cheng.

F.C AIA started the game in a 5-4-1 formation, whereas F.C. Mtatsminda lined up in a 3-5-2 formation. Paolo Alighini went down after twisting his left ankle after 17 minutes, and had to leave the pitch. The replacement for the injured player was David Christoph Rheinbach. Godfrey Museveni was the new captain of F.C AIA - handed the armband by the departing player. Mestan Ergönül came close to putting the visiting team one up 30 minutes into the match, following a solo raid down the middle, but Nino Brechot managed to tip the ball to a corner. Roar Edvardsen had a good try after 31 minutes, coming in on a fine move from the left, but the ball went wide. Mtatsminda's Mestan Ergönül gave the visitors a 0 - 1 lead after 32 minutes with a superb strike from the right. Nino Brechot got a fingertip on Jovert Cheng's shot from the left 41 minutes in, and managed to keep the visitors from going up another goal. 0 - 1 was the score after the first half. Mtatsminda had most of the ball, with 56 percent of possession.

With the clock showing 49 minutes played, a great pass from the defensive line of Mtatsminda resulted in a counterattack that was smoothly brought under control by Krum Dashev in the centre of the opposition's penalty area, but his finish went high. After 69 minutes, an incisive pass through the middle gave Jovert Cheng a chance to increase the lead for Mtatsminda, and he did not disappoint. The score was then 0 - 2. The home side worked hard to get through the middle and as a result, had a good chance of getting one back as Godfrey Museveni tried lifting the ball over keeper Hasan Ali Düzen. Unfortunately, the ball went just over the bar. Mtatsminda increased the lead to 0 - 3 as Robert Hagen scored from the penalty spot, putting the ball in near the top left corner. 81 minutes into the match, Mestan Ergönül came through the middle and almost added to his team's lead, but the shot went wide. The players were tired, but when the referee announced that there would be 1 minute of added time they, nonetheless, welcomed the extra opportunity to make an impact. The match ends 0 - 3. Mtatsminda enjoyed most of the ball, as they maintained 59 percent of possession.

F.C AIA's best player was Clint Cooke. Nino Brechot was a disappointment, however. Krum Dashev performed admirably for Mtatsminda. On the other hand, Ange Guillot's play was disheartening.
