The 71602 fans in attendance at Rolls-Royce Stadium were roasting in the hot sun. Darren Patton was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Petros Sofias and Leonardo Robledo. 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. The match took place on neutral ground. The following players took the field: Ebenhöch - Tessari, Lewicki - Oberreiter, Filipenko, Struś, Oropeza, Somoza - Ramseyer, Wagner, Anh Triết.

They fielded: Mamasyan - Theiss, Anh Chung, Goguet, Al Benali - Duckworth, Quyện, Văn Kính, Văn Hùng - Quang Hoa, Đăng Hưng.

It was to be a contest between two different football philosophies, since the home team started the game with a 2-5-3 formation while the visitors instead opted for 4-4-2. Pressing was the tactic of the day for Hai Phong, taking advantage of their extra-terrestrial level with that tactic. 0 - 1 was the score with 11 minutes played, after La Đăng Hưng cut through the central defence and chipped home a goal for Hai Phong. Hai Phong pressed their opponents, causing the game to be a bit of a stalemate at times. With 28 minutes played, Simon Goguet of Hai Phong fell dramatically just outside the penalty area. However, the referee was unimpressed, and booked him for diving. Hai Phong earned themselves a free kick after a counterattack wasn't dealt with adequately by their opponents. Nguyễn Văn Kính powered the shot in for 0 - 2. The unexpected cross pass from Hai Phong's Christopher Jan Theiss after 37 minutes opened up the defence and was received by Phạm Văn Hùng who finished off for 0 - 3. Amadeo Somoza almost reduced the deficit, having drawn the entire left side defence away, but the shot went straight into the arms of the goalkeeper. The game was close to savage at times, and Hai Phong's Simon Goguet received a second yellow card after 40 minutes; his ticket out of the game. The teams went for the halftime break at 0 - 3. Hai Phong claimed to have seen most of the ball, and the statistics agreed with them - possession being 55 percent.

Hai Phong's ability to press all over the field frequently paid dividends. Hai Phong's talent at pressing frustrated the spectators as the game became a dire midfield struggle. Faris Al Benali left the field with a smile on his face as he was substituted 70 minutes into the game, as his team was in the lead. John Wynne was the replacement. At this time in the match, Hai Phong were using their skill at pressing to successfully stifle the game. The pressing tactics used by Hai Phong were successful as the ball remained close to the half way line at all times. The home crowd was not impressed when Nguyễn Quang Hoa came in from the right, shooting hard to score after 83 minutes. Hai Phong were now up 0 - 4. With 88 minutes played, the Sion.F.C coach decided a substitution may help turn the game around. Vasil' Lamac' came on, Michał Struś had to leave the fray. The bench was restless, and with 89 minutes passed Sion.F.C's coach gave Horace Pham the opportunity the player had been hoping for. Ariel Lewicki reluctantly left the field. 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 - 4. Hai Phong enjoyed most of the ball, as they maintained 53 percent of possession.

Most important Sion.F.C player was Petro Filipenko. On the other hand, Châu Đặng Anh Triết's play was disheartening. Hai Phong's top performer was clearly La Đăng Hưng. John Wynne turned in a dismal performance, however.
